School of Ridiculous Inventions

Have you met our inventor Erik Thorstensson? No?!

— Hi, my name is Erik, I am an inventor, toy maker, engineer and model airplane builder. At Strawbees we are not afraid of failure - quite the opposite, it’s all about ‘learning by trying’. Let’s have some fun and build cool things! Finally, my ‘School of Ridiculous Inventions’ doors are open - this is going to be epic!

Let’s not waste any more time - hit play and let the game begin :).

Inventor and co-founder of Strawbees

Are you ready for a challenge?

"Have you tried bowling with a robot?"
"Built a man sized robot with a parachute, or a huge bubble machine?"

Erik has designed these challenges specifically for inspiring children. Some projects can be replicated at home or in the classroom, others are just to show what amazing things YOU can invent with Strawbees. They all encourage inquisitive young minds to get (ridiculously) excited about engineering.


Behind the scenes with Erik - get a little taster for what is to come!
