A "build on your own desk" cabin! This hands on miniature construction wood framing kit is loaded with STEAM learning. Cut out all wood beams to specific lenghts from 1/8" square basswood, use the craft glue provided and watch how your frame becomes more stable as you attach more wooden beams. The base entails a piece of coroplast cut down to 8"x8". We will provide you with a template should you want to give your students the proper specs or have them build their own model adding personal creativity and imagination into the equation. Popsicle sticks are included should you want to add siding to the frame and shingles for your roof! Learn about how to build a truss roof for your cabin using 90 degree angle gussets. Add some wire and small light bulbs (not included) and get your students to design some interior or exterior lighting!  

You may want to use hot glue to speed up the process but the craft glue provided will do the trick! A ruler or tape measure will also be a huge help for you. 

Learn about concepts like: 

  1. Design & Layout
  2. Measurement 
  3. Angles 
  4. Structural Strength
  5. Design & Technology Principles 
  6. The art of proper gluing
