Newspaper Stixx - Creative Workshops - Incorporating the S.T.E.A.M subjects 

The workshops are engaging hands on experiences that encourage the creative reuse of materials.


The Stixx Machine is hand operated and portable. Children and young adults of all abilities can use it to roll newspaper sheets into rigid construction rods.

Through exploration and experimentation with the rods, imaginative three dimensional structures, and sculptures can be built.


The activities make the learning memorable by promoting collaboration, communication, design thinking skills and a sense of enjoyment.
