Introduce students to the basics of structural engineering with recyclable straws and connectors! Students construct replica models of real-world objects like a geodesic dome, which encloses the most volume in the least surface area. Then students extend their imaginations to the stars to construct a morphing arm that extracts moon rocks! Then, let students off the rails to construct anything they want! This open-ended, simplified kit includes a universe of possibilities for students to make anything they can dream. Have them explore the nuances of varied construction materials, combining pieces to create movable joints, hinges, and more. Full-color instruction manual guides students through 21 interactive models. Recommended for Elementary.
