Do you ever wonder how bridges span huge distances and how skyscrapers stay standing? Structural engineers use physics and their knowledge of the properties of building materials and geometric shapes to design structures with sufficient strength and stability.

With this kit of modular building pieces, you can learn the basics of structural engineering by conducting a series of 20 model-building experiments. Each model demonstrates a basic principle of mechanical physics or structural engineering in a hands-on way.

Start out with small models that demonstrate how structural elements can be attached together to maximize the strength of a structure for a fixed amount of material used. Learn about basic structural elements including columns, beams, trusses, plates, arches, shells, and catenary. Explore the forces acting on structural components including tension, compression, shear, and bending.

Move onto building more complex models of trusses, roofs, and small buildings. Experiment with different types of bridge construction: a truss bridge, arch bridge, cantilever bridge, rope bridge, and suspension bridge. Finally, build models of towering skyscrapers. What is the tallest tower you can build using only the pieces included in the kit?

Learn about the strength and stiffness of materials. See how structural engineers optimize factors to maximize safety, and minimize cost and the risk of structural failure.

Scientific principles illustrated

The Structural Engineer Kit is a dynamic exploration of architectural principles, transforming young builders into budding engineers. This hands-on kit unveils the secrets of structural design, teaching kids about load distribution, balance, and the strength of materials. As they construct bridges, towers, and structures, they intuitively grasp the fundamentals of engineering and geometry. The modular nature of the kit allows experimentation with different designs, fostering creativity and problem-solving skills.

Users gain insights into the stability of various structures, the importance of foundation, and the role of symmetry in engineering. Beyond building, this kit becomes a gateway to understanding real-world constructions, inspiring a future generation of architects and engineers with a passion for designing the world around them.

The Structural Engineer Kit transforms playtime into a constructive learning adventure, nurturing a lifelong interest in the principles that shape our built environment.

Part of a bundle

I bought a bundle of 3 items for my son and got a 10% discount, which was great. Was very handy to be able to get everything for him here in the one place. Delivery was super fast and the products are very high quality. My son can't wait to get home every day to pull this kit out... he's been very creative with it building bridges and skyscrapers of his own design. Great learning toy!
