Thames and Kosmos Structural Engineering kit teaches the basics of structural engineering by conducting a series of 20 model-building experiments and how structural engineers use physics of the properties of building materials and geometric shapes to design structures.

Start out with small models that demonstrate how structural elements such as beams, plates, arches, and more can be attached together to maximize the strength of a structure for a fixed amount of material used. After that, move onto more complex models of trusses, roofs, small buildings, and various types of bridges. Finally, put your knowledge to the test by building models of towering skyscrapers and see how high you can build it using the pieces included in the kit.

  • Build 20 different models to learn about force, load, compression, tension, and more
  • Over 285 durable, interchangeable building pieces
  • Includes 36-page, illustrated manual
