Science Experiment Kit
  • Learn the basics of structural engineering by conducting a series of 20 model-building experiments that demonstrates basic principles of mechanical physics or structural engineering in a hands-on way.
  • Explore how structural elements such as columns, beams, trusses, plates, arches, shells, and catenary can be attached to maximize strength.
  • Investigate the forces acting on structural components including tension, compression, shear, and bending.
  • Experiment with 5 different types of bridge construction including a truss bridge, arch bridge, cantilever bridge, rope bridge, and suspension bridge.
  • Erect models of towering skyscrapers and see how tall you can build using just the pieces included in the kit.
  • Discover how structural engineers optimize factors to maximize safety, and minimize cost and the risk of structural failure
  • A 36-page, full-color manual provides step-by-step illustrated instructions and scientific explanations.
  • Compatible with other kits in the Thames amp; Kosmos Construction, Physics, Remote-Control, and Robotics series.
