The Young Engineers Bridge Kit Build models of the Roman arch, the classic truss bridge, and suspension bridge  The Young Engineers Bridge Kit
This model kit is an introduction to structural engineering and the art of building bridges, and it has easy-to-follow instructions, tools, and paints that allow children to build faithfully-detailed models of historical spans including the ancient Roman arch, the classic truss bridge, and the suspension bridge. The casting compound and molds produce authentic-looking replicas of the tensile stress-reducing voussoirs that the Roman Empire employed in their bridges and viaducts; the truss bridge provides lessons in the symbiotic relationship between tension and compression as children construct the bridge using girders and gussets; the 3'-long suspension bridge requires building the towers and suspending the bridge with string, replicating t he design of The Golden Gate Bridge. The 48-page book covers the history of bridge building. Includes instruction booklet, river landscape base, sandpaper, paint, glue, and paintbrush. Ages 8 and up. The manufacturer has confirmed that this item meets U.S. Federal toy safety standards for lead. Landscape base with erected bridges: 51/2" H x 111/2" W x 10 1/2" L. (2 lbs.) Suspension bridge: 10" H x 2 3/4" W x 36" L. (2 oz.)
