Grade 3 and up. How can bridges span huge distances and tall skyscrapers remaining standing? Learn about those structural (civil) engineering principles while building bridges and skyscrapers with the Structural Engineering: Bridges & Skyscrapers Kit. Structural engineers use their knowledge of physics, material properties, and geometrical shapes to design structures of sufficient strength and stability—maximizing safety while minimizing cost and the risk of structural failure.

With the 323 pieces in this kit, students can:

  • Learn about basic structural elements including columns, beams, trusses, plates, arches, shells, catenary, and about the strength and stiffness of materials
  • Explore forces acting on structural components including tension, compression, shear, and bending
  • Experiment with different types of bridges including the truss bridge, arch bridge, cantilever bridge, rope bridge, and suspension bridge
  • Build models of towering skyscrapers

Kit includes an experiment manual with step-by-step instructions for building 20 models.
