The students loved the possibilities that Makedo Toolset gave them to create with cardboard. Their thinking process on how to solve problems was put to the test in a good way. This tool helped to hold the students’ attention while building with cardboard. Students loved it!

Makedo is a simple to use, open-ended system of tools for creative cardboard construction. Build imaginative and useful creations from upcycled (repurposed) everyday cardboard. The awesomeness of Makedo is that children learn by doing, creating, experimenting, failing and maybe succeeding but that’s not essential. The creations then open the door to imaginative play where the child is protagonist in a hack-able world of their own making. Makedo comes to life in collaborative creative environments such as classrooms, maker spaces, museums and of course homes.

“With Makedo Toolset, students are immediately engaged and eager to participate. The product transformed my learning space into a complete discovery zone. I see this product potentially enhancing my entire school environment. I could see our gym being transformed into a massive maker space where many classrooms could participate. This product has massive potential, engaging all learners at all levels.”
“This kit brings opportunities to all students to build and create in multiple ways. Being able to cut cardboard without a knife is fabulous and helps students to build in a different way. Students can collaborate, build, plan, and revise quickly with this kit. The conversations are wonderful and students are full of questions too.”
