Cardboard as a building block.

As a construction material, cardboard has a lot going for it. Here’s why we chose it as the building block for all Makedo creations:

O

It’s sustainable, fully recyclable and can be used again and again.

O

It’s sturdy but pliable enough for small hands to manipulate.

O

It’s versatile. Cardboard can be folded, sawed through and hole-punched all while maintaining its durability.

O

It’s free! Fantastic for those modest classroom budgets.

Makedo interrupts the waste stream by using otherwise discarded cardboard for making do.

Makedo is the perfect STEAM teaching and learning tool.

Addressing an authentic problem with the application of knowledge across Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math is fun and engaging with Makedo.

Think prototyping ideas for a stool that can withstand the weight of a classmate, or building a tower so tall and sturdy that it reaches the ceiling, or even exploring solutions for global issues like access to safe water. All this and more can be done with Makedo tools and cardboard.

And of course, STEAM learning with Makedo develops the four Cs; collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and communication, as well as design thinking; the skills to question, analyse, reason, evaluate, problem solve, and innovate. Important skills for now and the future because real world problems need big picture thinkers to help solve them.

Endless possibilities.

As well as our existing Makedo tools, we’ve created a library of Makedo compatible parts for you to freely download and 3D print yourself.

There are parts to enhance functionality, improve efficiency and integrate directly with other maker products. It’s an ongoing project so keep checking back in.
