Here’s an example of what you can build at home!


What age is this kit suitable for?

7 years and upwards. Kids aged up to 11 would probably need some adult assistance but don’t let that stop you! I work with kids aged 7+ in my Inventor Club and they are more capable than you know!

What do I need to build this kit?

You’ll need a glue gun, something to score the card with like a ruler or a round ended knife, a craft knife and some time. you can order the glue gun and knife from me, there should be a link below or click HERE

What format are the instructions?

The are in video format – I find that video brings instructions to life like words and pictures never could!

See the bottom of this page for the instructional videos.

Can I collect in person?

Not for now… 🙂

Are these compatible with my other kits?

Good question! Here’s the thing, once you learn the skills associated with this kit, there’s no reason why you couldn’t smash the ping pong launcher and this kit together!

How do I access the online learning

The associated learning is all video based, you’ll be emailed a link to access the content.
