First, let's go through the basics...

Who can apply?

The challenge is open for teachers of schools, afterschool programs, non-profit or other independent education organisations, maker spaces, STEM labs, museums and parents worldwide, who can submit projects in 3 different groups. For questions email info@strawbees.com.

  • Group 1: Teacher & students (6-8 years old)
  • Group 2: Teacher & students (9-14 years old)
  • Group 3: Parents & home learners (6-14 years old)

Teachers can submit projects made by teams of up to four students. One teacher can submit multiple projects (but one team can only make one project).

Parents can submit projects made by a family team of one or more children. One parent can only submit one project.

Ground rules

The basic rule is that you need to use Strawbees products in the projects, but we are also inclusive in regarding being combined with other existing learning tools.

Due to Privacy Policy, Strawbees only accepts video projects submitted not showing faces of students/ kids. Projects will be featured on Strawbees Site for the People's Choice Award. You could, for instance, just film kids hands, demo yourself but have kids' voiceover or add emojis to their faces later.

Due to copyrights, please choose songs which are in the public domain or improvise!
