Structures like the Golden Gate bridge can be a breathtaking sight. How can anything so big begin as an idea and end up as a working monument? From suspension to draw bridges, students can learn about bridges, how they're built, and design principles with this lab.
Hands-on activities also include having students design and build a model bridge. Design, build and evaluate bridges, towers and structures using the Bridge and Tower Tester for stress and the E.Q. Earthquake Machine (shown with the Mass Destruction Unit which is available seperately - see below) for vibration. Grades 7-12. No Computer Required.
