DIY Wood Connectors for Makerspace
E98.1 | 9-12+
STEM has evolved over the last years to drive Maker spaces that encompass more hands-on challenges that lead to a deeper understanding of product design and manufacturing. ENGINO® has developed the ideal set of reusable consumable materials that can help students design and craft their own models. The set includes the ENGINO® wood connectors which can be combined together to create any type of 3D joint. Students can cut by themselves pieces of wooden beams of 10×10 mm and insert them into these connectors, combining them with standard ENGINO® parts for more specialized functions. All plastic parts in the set are made from 100% reusable ABS so that they can be used as low-cost, environmentally friendly consumables, so that students can take their models at home. These parts made from regrinded plastic are produced in black colour. The set includes a number of lock pins which can be used to attach flat surfaces of different thicknesses and materials on the models. With the parts included in the set, an example project of a DIY Greenhouse or a house can be created.
