Ultimate Bridge Designer's Kit Without a Scale (SBD-5223-KIT)

Price:   $106.61   
There are many different types of bridges, from simple plank bridges spanning a small stream to elegant suspension bridges supported by tall towers and soaring cables. Have you ever wondered about how much weight the different types of bridges can support? This kit lets you investigate which type of bridge has the greatest weight bearing capacity, based on the Science Buddies project "The Effect of Bridge Design on Weight Bearing Capacity." The kit contains all the materials you need to build a variety of bridges and then test them to see how much weight each design can hold. The spring scales included with this kit make it easy to precisely measure the amount of weight applied to each bridge design. Perhaps you will want to design one or more of your models to resemble a bridge near you, look at the bridges where you live, research different design - it's your challenge to find the best bridge design!

Kits contain tested materials to ensure that you have what you need to successfully complete your science project, have fun, and learn some science along the way!
