How to make stuff

by Eva Hakansson

There is no better way of learning that actually making stuff with your own hands! Find your own superhero power and let’s make something. Perhaps something that makes the world a better place, or just something that makes you a better and more skilled person. The choice is yours. Let’s get our hands dirty! You will be amazed how satisfying it will be.

On this page I am sharing my best tips and tricks how to build anything from paper models to world record breaking motorcycles. Click on the photos to get to the different sections. The material is continuously being updated. Some of the sections may have very little material today, but there may be a whole lot added tomorrow. Come by frequently! My latest posts about Making Stuff are found at the bottom of this page, but the sections below are also frequently being updated.

Have fun building stuff, and as one of the engineering students at University of Auckland said “A small project is a gateway drug!”. I can only agree. When you have completed your first engineering or science project, you immediately want to start the next one. And the next one and the next one. And before you know it, you have learned a bunch of new skills!
