Bored? Try our Summer STEM challenge

Need something to pass the time this summer?

Engineering can take many forms, paracord is a cheap yet strong material used by the military and many people to make all sorts of things.


The best thing about it is the price, you can pick up paracord in camping shops locally for around £2 for 15 metres which will last you ages.

We want to see your creations! You can make key rings, bottle carrying slings, wallets, cases, bracelets and more!

For ideas take a look here on Pinterest or Google your own projects. Some basic weaving techniques can be found here.

Show us your creations by emailing or showing us on twitter @rydestem
