Gigo Architectural Engineering
Soaring spires, towering arches, fascinatingly complex curves and angles! Build your foundation in architectural design with this fascinating STEM experiment kit that explores the engineering principles used in modern-day buildings. Through model building exercises, you play the role of architect and engineer as you piece together an array of models─from small, basic structural elements like trusses, arches, and domes to giant complex models of real-world buildings.
Try recreating some of the world’s most interesting buildings! With 26 guided model builds, you can construct stadiums, skyscrapers, a Ferris wheel, and more. With these hands-on exercises, you’ll develop an understanding of how architectural engineers apply scientific principles to their designs and the buildings and structures of the 21st century push materials and engineering to the limits. The 48-page, full-color manual guides your journey while encouraging independent exploration. What is the tallest tower, the most voluminous dome, or the longest bridge you can build with the modular building pieces? How will you us what you learn to further your architectural explorations?
