Civil Engineer Starter Kit
Raise the roof with this civil engineer starter kit! Build a bridge that’s held together with just friction and gravity Construct a tall tower strengthened with reinforcements, then wire up a “shake table” to put your builds to the test! Learn about the technology behind construction, and explore STEM in a brand new way.
Why it’s awesome
Build, test, repeat
Test out different shapes and structures to see what’s strongest.
Shake things up
Wire up a motor to make a mechanical shake table.
Discover amazing buildings that are built to take a quake.
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!”
- KiwiCo Product Designer
