Intro to Structures: Bridges
Thirteen different bridge models in seven bridge types (beam, truss, arch, cantilever, suspension, cable-stayed and movable/bascule) are possible with this 207 piece set. Students can experiment with the strength, load, and stability of each bridge, calculate cost involved in construction, learn key features associated with each bridge type and more. Color-coded instructions and a 92-page teacher guide with lesson plans, extension activities, and worksheets are included. ~ Megan
