The NEW starter kit from Arckit!
Arckit GO is now available. Just a month after winning the Red Dot Award 2015 for our professional architectural model building tool, Arckit, we are now launching the next big thing – Arckit GO. It’s based on exactly the same modular components as the original kit, but allows budding young architects to experience the fun of instant model building with a starter set priced at just £49.99. So what’s included in the box?
Arckit GO comes with…
- 160+ modular Arckit components
- Illustrated instruction booklet
- Access to digital components in SketchUp
If you are looking for something above and beyond the building blocks and model sets you played with as a child, then Arckit GO is for you. It’s a starter version that uses the same components as the award-winning Arckit range – a professional design tool used by aspiring architects, schools with STEM initiatives, and model hobbyists.
Arckit GO contains enough components to build smaller architectural structures before moving to the bigger kits. With over 160 pieces (and additional component packs available to buy online) you can design, build and modify anything from a miniature tower building to a luxury beach hut.
The idea is to inspire budding architects to learn basic design skills using a glue free system that can be endlessly altered. Completed models can also be finished with realistic surface patterns and textures using the Arckitexture Library – the self-adhesive sheets needed for this are available as an extra and are not included with Arckit GO.
Arckit GO is perfect for…
- Schools and Universities
- Budding young architects
- Planning home extensions
- Teaching educational STEM skills
The massive benefit of Arckit GO is that it offers an award-winning model building system that teaches fundamental STEM skills and hands-on design at an affordable price. As well as being a fun starter kit, the components are fully compatible with the other products in the Arckit range, so it can be used alongside other kits and component packs to make even bigger structures. This makes Arckit GO perfect for anyone interested in exploring Arckit for the first time, as well as existing Arckit users who want to expand the floor area of their models.
Arckit GO teaches you…
- Basics of architecture and construction
- Essential STEM skills for future careers
- Physical interaction with a design tool
- How to have fun building models!
Arckit is used in both UK and US schools as a physical tool to teach valuable STEM skills (science, technology, engineering and math). Read our recent blog about how Convent of the Sacred Heart School in Manhattan are using Arckit for Technology and Engineering classes. If you are a teacher or school then Arckit GO is the ideal introduction to using this groundbreaking educational tool as part of your curriculum.
