With the ArtSkills Epic Lab Make and Break Tester STEM Structural Engineering Kit, kids will be able to design and create strong, stable skyscrapers! This science kit is packed with options for educational fun. Kids can follow the guided experiments to discover how different construction methods affect a structure's stability. The working Shake Table will allow young architects to test how their towers would hold up in an earthquake!

Learn with STEM Kits

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. STEM Activity Kits incorporating these fields are stimulating for young, curious minds. Kids will learn to experiment, use logic, solve problems, think creatively, test their knowledge and complete hands-on projects. This is great enrichment for children, who will take these skills with them into their education and their future!

Create Towering Structures

This fun science activity lets kids build their own skyscrapers. Using plastic rods and spheres of clay, they can make each tower as tall as they want. Many different options are included for stabilizing the towers, such as adding dampers or reinforcements. Children can plan and design their structures while learning about geometry, engineering and industrial design.

Shake and Test

This Epic Labs Structural Engineering Kit will teach kids about the importance of stable surfaces, foundations, braces and dampers. After constructing a tower, they can place it onto the foundation to test its stability. A working Shake Table is complete with Agitator Handles to create vibration and tremors in the ground, simulating an earthquake. This kit even includes Slime to add to the foundation in order to create an unstable surface base. Children will also learn about the science of bridges and different building bases.
