Cardboard is a versatile material that is strong and easy to use. But students are often frustrated when their creations don’t perform as well as they envisioned. The construction techniques demonstrated in this presentation are based on sound engineering principles. Student teams that employ these methods will build better and more attractive models, and your classroom use of duct tape will drop dramatically! Here are some of the techniques included:

  • Cutting, scoring, and folding
  • Round and sharp corners
  • Vertical wall construction
  • Flanges
  • Triangle braces
  • Notch and key
  • Fasteners and adhesives
  • and many more
