Inspire future creators with a vacuum former that fits on standard desktops and is easy to use, allowing ideas to be morphed into reality within minutes and without close supervision. All it takes is an ordinary vacuum to start forming! Sculpt or find any shape (up to 6"L x 6"W x 5"H), create a 3D mold in seconds, and fill it with anything from chocolate to concrete to create your own product.
Have students build a geodesic dome to teach design thinking, mold polygons for the ultimate hands-on math lesson, or empower students to create anything they think of. Downloadable lesson plans cover translatable concepts such as designing for manufacture, the importance of recycling, aerodynamic principles, microbes, and 3D printing—spanning the entire spectrum of STEM learning.
