Design, build, test, repeat!!! TeacherGeek bridges allow you to do what was never-before possible; test/destroy and then rebuild, learn through experimentation and failure, grow understanding while evolving designs. You can even use wire tension-only members! There’s no gluing (hot glue burns or waiting for glue to dry). Every design can be improved so students are never done.

This activity comes with downloadable engineering challenges and optional labs. For ages 8-22 / Grades 3 to university (different challenges/labs for different ages). Optional labs teach about structural shapes, deflection, tension & compression, software analysis, Hooke’s law, elastic and plastic deformation and member forces within trusses.

A Pack contains components to create 10 bridges and an apparatus to help test them. Tools are required for construction. A 5gal or 7gal bucket is required for testing.
