Civil Engineer Starter Kit


What you get

Raise the roof — and discover STEM learning — with this civil engineer starter kit! Build a bridge that’s held together with just friction and gravity. Construct a tall tower and strengthen it with reinforcements. Then wire up a “shake table” to put your structures to an earthquake test! Learn some constructive facts about the technology that keeps structures standing tall, bridges holding fast, and more. Practice, play, and explore to learn the tools of the trade — and kick off a career in engineering!




From the desk of the product designer:

Behind the design

Civil engineers are always working to build bigger and better structures. So we took an existing shake table project we had in our back pocket and made it bigger and better too! With this extra activity, kids get an even deeper dive into the wonderful world of engineering!

By the numbers

Civil engineers consulted: 3

Building connector shapes prototyped: 6

Structures that collapsed during earthquake testing: Many!
