National Standards for Grade Levels 7-12


Students gain a comprehensive understanding of structural engineering and learn how engineering concepts are applied in supporting or resisting loads. As they compare bridges and learn the STEM principles that support their designs. Students construct working models of a suspension bridge, a cable-stayed bridge, an arch bridge, and two truss bridges. They are also challenged to build the largest free standing tower possible using the Engino® components included. Finally, students apply their newly acquired knowledge to design and build a straw bridge to specifications using plastic straws and masking tape. Includes all building and testing materials, instructor’s manual, lesson plans, Engino® hands on activity books, building instructions, and student worksheets. Plan to spend 10-14 days on the Unit. Designed for 24 students working in groups of four.
