Young architects put on their hard hats and take a deep dive into the world of structural engineering to figure out the science behind 2 of the world’s greatest architectural feats. Working by themselves or with a parent, young learners build and experiment with their own replicas of the Eiffel Tower and the Sydney Harbour Bridge!
KIDS GET | Our Architecture building set will teach young engineers all there is to know about the physics behind large buildings and bridges, including forces, loads and materials. Young learners will also discover how engineers defy the laws of gravity and keep heavy bridges standing using triangulation, arches and cable supports.
BOOKLET | Detailed explanations of every scientific principle involved with interesting facts and history. Test newly acquired knowledge with fun experiments.
INSTRUCTIONS | Includes print and online instructions to create up to 11 different awesome models young inventors can set into motion with a 3V motor.
GENERAL | For ages 8 to 16 ~ Interactive 3D building app lets children build in virtual reality ~ Fully compatible with all Engino products for hours of freestyle creative play ~ Environmentally friendly toxin-free plastic.

The ARCHITECTURE SET demonstrates the ability of the Engino system to build huge models of impressive size and style. Create two oversized models of the world famous Eiffel Tower in France and the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia! The Eiffel Tower model measures 150 cm (59") tall and the Sydney Harbour Bridge measures 142 cm (56") in length! The set comes in a convenient plastic storage tub with lid for easy storage. It also contains a second booklet about buildings and bridges, providing detailed explanations of the different scientific principles applied and incorporating innovative experimental activities for hands-on learning. Build 9 working models - One model can be build at a time- such as a house, a pyramid and various types of bridges: beam, arch, truss, cable-stayed and suspension bridge.
*Snap-fit connectivity in any direction and angle.
*Extraction tool for easy disassembly.
*Easy-to-follow building instructions.
*All parts are non-toxic and made to last. Vibrant coloured parts.
*Printed instruction are included.
*The Discovering STEM series introduces children into the world of STEM disciplines (Science – Technology – Engineering and Mathematics) through a completely new learning approach! Boys and girls can construct exciting models while learning scientific and technological subjects and doing experiments in each theme.
*34-page booklet about the history of the Eiffel Tower and the Sydney Bridge with building instructions! 38-page booklet about buildings and bridges with theory, experimental activities, quiz and building instructions! Full colour images, drawings and interesting facts. Thought provoking building challenges and exercises. Provision to write, note results and draw conclusions. Conduct thorough experiments and discover: - how triangulation provides strength on a building; - what are the main types of forces acting on structures; - how do trusses work; - what are the major types of cable bridges.
*All models are available as interactive 3D instructions viewed either from a PC or from smartphones and tablets through the ENGINO 3D Viewer app, downloadable for free in Android, Apple (iOS) and Windows mobile operating systems.
