For your STEM curriculum.
Grades 7-12. With this kit, students will gain comprehensive knowledge of structural engineering and how it is used to support or resist loads. The class will study different types of bridges and the STEM principles that support them. They will construct six working models including a house, a suspension bridge, a cable-stayed bridge, an arch bridge, and two different truss bridges. The students will also be challenged to build the largest free-standing tower in the class using the kit components. Finally, the students will need to apply all they have learned to build a bridge that spans 70 cm and will support a minimum distributed static load of 2 kg using only 100 plastic straws and a limited amount of masking tape. Designed for 24 students working in six groups of four.
