Structures & Bridges
Life wouldn’t be possible without structures. While you may not think about it in this way, your body, a swing set, a tree, and the Washington Monument all have something in common: they are all structures. Simply put, structures support weight, and the easiest way to explore the different ways structures do that is through a study of bridges.

Understand Bridges!
With Engino Structures & Bridges, your children will learn how weight is distributed, the advantages of a suspension bridge, how triangulation strengthens construction, how tension gives stability to a bridge, and what we need to do to make a home more structurally sound.

Fun for the whole family!
Engino Structures & Bridges includes 365 of Engino’s celebrated components and a colorful, child-friendly activity booklet with detailed explanations of the technology employed. The activity booklet also contains interesting facts, hands-on experiments, exercises, and even quizzes. Engino Structures & Bridges includes an additional wordless booklet with step-by-step instructions on how to construct the six main models. Your children will never look at structures the same way again!

Build the following models:

An arch bridge
Build an amazing model of an arch bridge and learn the properties of the arch! See how this bridge can be made stable and can support a lot of weight by transferring it to the abutments.

A suspension bridge
This fascinating model of a suspension bridge will introduce you to a special type of bridge, the cable-bridge! Learn by experimenting how the tension of the cables supports the deck of the bridge.

A truss bridge
Build two models of a truss bridge, one with the truss over the deck and one with the truss under the deck! Learn how triangulation offers great stability and rigidity to structure. Discover different types of the same bridge.

A cable-stayed bridge
This model of a cable-stayed bridge is another type of a cable bridge. One famous example of this bridge is the Rio-Antirion bridge in Greece, the world's longest multi-span cable-stayed bridge. Discover the two types of cable-stayed bridges.

A house structure
Make a model of a house and learn how triangles and squares are elements we can use to make our structures more stable. Discover all the different types of forces and loads.

Educate and excite with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Toys

What is STEM?
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, but what STEM education focuses on is much more than these four subjects. The focus of STEM education is how these subjects relate to each other and the real world. That means that these subjects need to be taught together and be focused on problem solving.

What are STEM Toys?
STEM toys encourage kids to develop skills in the core disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Why did we select these STEM Toys?
We chose these STEM toys because they have clear goals and encourage kids to learn STEM skills while having fun.
