Bridges and Building 

Have you ever been across a bridge and wondered how it works?  Get ready to get your mind in motion as you work with and take home your very own Structures Set!  Learn all about buildings and bridges and how they literally support our lives!  Experiment with different types of bridges and find out how their architectural design provides massive weight support.  Discover all the types of forces applied and how engineers manage to reduce their effects.  With your kit, you can build up to nine working models such as a house, pyramid, and various types of bridges: beam, arch, truss, cable-stayed and suspension bridge.  You will study theory and learn the history of some amazing structures and historical landmarks.  Come bring out the architect side of you as you enter the fascinating world of buildings and bridges and explore the magic of STEM!
