Welcome to Strawbees Musical Tinkering Challenge!

From an early age, I experimented with different instruments combining creativity and engineering. At Strawbees we say: ‘Imagination, not instructions!’ Transform your classroom into a music band! Start tinkering and creating your own instruments with your students! How about coming up with something completely new!? Design, program, and engineer your own musical instrument and show off your students work and who knows - win an award!

Wanna let your students shine like rockstars? Then this challenge is for you.

Get inspired by some of our work below.

I look forward to start sharing some rockstar ideas!

Erik Thorstensson,
Inventor of Strawbees
