Civil Engineer Starter Kit
What you get
Raise the roof — and discover STEM learning — with this civil engineer starter kit! Build a bridge that’s held together with just friction and gravity. Construct a tall tower and strengthen it with reinforcements. Then wire up a “shake table” to put your structures to an earthquake test! Learn some constructive facts about the technology that keeps structures standing tall, bridges holding fast, and more. Practice, play, and explore to learn the tools of the trade — and kick off a career in engineering!
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!”
By the numbers
Civil engineers consulted: 3
Building connector shapes prototyped: 6
Structures that collapsed during earthquake testing: Many!
KiwiCo does it again! Celebrating a civil engineers birthday in this house, our kids gifted their dad this crate. They were so excited to see and create what their dad does for a living. Great quality and easy to understand! The books help facilitate everyone to dive in deeper! We absolutely love KiwiCo
My grandson loved it
A perfect level for my five year old - something he could do on his own, and things he needed help with. He was fascinated and really loved it. And he keeps coming back to it, day after day.
