Option 1: Make it from a template
Head to the Double Helix website (Double Helix is a science magazine for young people in Australia!)
Print the paper templates.
Cut, fold and glue to make your own ISS
Option 2: Raid the recycling bin
Alternatively recycle your empty cans, crisp tubes and toilet rolls and other materials.
Check out the instructions on the European Space Agency website
You’ll also need

- glue and scissors
- aluminium foil
- white or coloured paper
- felt-tip pens and anything else you’d like to use to decorate it.
