Popsicle Bridge Howe Truss Kit

By on November 17, 2011


This is a great opportunity to learn principles of engineering and physics while having lots of fun. This popsicle bridge kit allows you to construct a Howe Truss Bridge which really works. Not only does this bridge work, but it can hold some serious weight. Put a load of 100 pounds on it, no problem. And if you spread the load out along the entire span, this little bridge can hold 140+ pounds of force.

Popsicle sticks are easy to work with, making this kit enjoyable for younger ages. Yet, because of its strength and performance, this bridge is a great choice for older students who are looking to impress.

Included in the kit are all the materials you will need to build the popsicle Howe Truss bridge: popsicle sticks, glue, tape, blueprints, and step-by-step building instructions with pictures to illustrate each step. Join the fun and order your kit today!
