CREATIVITY IS KING! The 3DuxDesign mission is to inspire today’s youth to become tomorrow’s innovators. This open-ended construction kit gives kids the tools to imagine, design, build and then refine their creations. By adding your own repurposed cardboard, children have endless raw materials to work with and learn about creative repurposing while they build. 3DuxDesign cardboard modeling sets offer the perfect building and prototyping materials for students of all ages. With 3DuxDesign cardboard construction, we offer today’s children the tools to make a better tomorrow.
Power up your 3DuxDesign projects! Bring them to life with the Build-A-Bot Accessory Set and Project-Based Learning Resources for grades 3-5 and 5+. This product includes the materials needed to motorize your 3DuxDesign modeling sets, free lessons and students worksheets. Your engineers will be introduced to electricity, circuits, friction, mass, forces, and the engineering design process.
Why 3DuxDesign Kits?
PROMOTES STEAM EDUCATION AND PLAY-BASED LEARNING – (science, technology, engineering, art, math) with a focus on physics, geometry, architecture, problem-solving, fine motor, and complex spatial thinking.
INSPIRES EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN TO REIMAGINE AND INNOVATE – Uses color, form, design, and architecture, to engage children (and adults) to think outside the box – construct a futuristic city, a castle, a farm, a marble run, a diorama for your school project, prototype your invention – the options are endless.
At 3Dux, they realize STEM education isn’t just about math and science—it’s also about art, the environment, and humanity. They encourage children to imaginatively and practically think through solutions to real-world problems by building structures and environments using the 3DuxDesign award-winning architectural modeling system. With a huge assortment of geometric forms and connectors engineered to fit most cardboard, children never run out of raw materials to work with and learn about creative repurposing while they build. 3DuxDesign unleashes the imagination and inspires the change-maker in every child.
3DuxDesign is truly a family business. It was founded by two siblings Ayana and Ethan Klein. Their parents help run the daily operations. Marci Klein, their mother, brings over 20 years of experience as an NYU Medical School-trained clinical and academic pediatrician. With a solid understanding of child development, safety, and health issues, she has helped gear the product design to be highly engaging, educational, and developmentally appropriate.
No messy glue or expensive tape, these connectors have the additional benefit of allowing students to rework and refine their projects over and over again.3DuxDesign connectors can be used for model making of any type… create buildings, vehicles, entire communities, bridges or use the science fair projects and prototypes.
This Accessory Kit has options.
