Never heard of bloxes? The best way to describe them is large cardboard Legos. Each piece starts out as a flat sheet of reinforced cardboard. Each sheet is then folded into a six sided notched cube. Once assembled, Bloxes are strong, durable and can be used to make almost anything! From furniture to forts the possibilities are endless.

This activity is being conceptualize by a group middle school students from Poughkeepsie Day school. The students plan to focus on design, math, art and engineering. Their goal is to teach the younger kids through the use of these Bloxes.
