Description

Are you interested in architectural design? If so, Thames & Kosmos' Architectural Engineering kit might be perfect for you! With this kit, you can explore the world of architecture and engineering by building models using small basic structural elements like trusses, arches, and domes. You can even construct complex models of real-world buildings like the Sydney Opera House or the Eiffel Tower!

Through 20 guided model builds, you'll gain a hands-on understanding of how architectural engineers apply scientific principles to their designs. You'll also discover how buildings and structures in the 21st century push materials and engineering to the limits. The kit comes with a 44-page full-color manual to guide your journey and encourage independent exploration. With the modular building pieces, you can challenge yourself to construct the tallest tower, most voluminous dome, or longest bridge possible. This kit is recommended for ages 8 years and older.
