Foundry in a Box

Foundry in a Box allows students to create their own castings, from pressing the oil-based sand into a small matchplate mold, melting tin on a hotplate and safely pouring the molten metal into the mold. Students may then keep their casting.

The AFS Tennessee Chapter has demonstrated the Foundry in a Box among several schools in the southeast Tennessee area. Our goal is to get kids interested in metal casting and metallurgy.
