Design, build, test, repeat! Forget popsicle stick, balsa wood, or spaghetti bridges, TeacherGeek bridges allow you to do what was never before possible: redesign and retest your bridge without the hot glue or mess. Using TeacherGeek's proprietary build system, students will have more control over their bridge than ever before; allowing them to learn through experimentation and failure, and evolve designs as their understanding grows. From arch bridges to trusses; with so many design possibilities students are never done making!
Each Breaking Bridges Activity comes with a printed Go-Guide to get kids started and inspire them to make their own unique designs. TeacherGeek also offers free science labs and engineering challenges to deepen students' understanding and challenge them even further, covering topics such as structural shapes, deflection, tension & compression, software analysis, Hooke's Law, elastic & plastic deformation, and member forces on trusses.
Pack contains components to create 10 bridges, and a hook to help test them. In addition to this kit, you need 5 or 7 gallon buckets, weights (e.g. water bottles), and tools (multi-cutter, pliers, screwdriver).
