Engineering With Triangles and Geometry: Modular Construction Build Techniques

Ms. Diane Sutliff
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(188)
In this four week course, we will create a series of large 3D constructions from drinking straws and pipe cleaners. We will start with simple units, and progress make larger and more complex structures. Math, geometry and engineering!

Class experience

This class is taught in English.
Learners will understand modular construction, learn basic geometry, hone handcraft skills and get the opportunity to think and plan in three dimensions.
For these projects we will need 

*150 NON-BENDABLE drinking straws in assorted colors. If you can only source bendable straws, please purchase extra because we only use the straight portion.  We will be cutting the straws into 3" and 3.5" segments, and we need about 300 segments in total.

*150 12" chenille stems (also called pipe cleaners). 

*household wire cutters 

*needle nose pliers to bend the tips of the wires so sharp ends are buried


*Sharpie or other permanent marker


Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
We will be using wire cutters to snip the chenille stems.  The ends of the stems can be sharp and we will be using needle-nose pliers to bend the ends under.  It is helpful to have tools the correct size for your learner's hands.  I have small hands and really appreciate smaller hand tools.

This is an example of the kind of 5" wire cutter I use:  https://www.amazon.com/Diagonal-Cutting-Electronics-Pointed-Terminals/dp/B0928KR3JK/?th=1
