Advanced Structures Set

Part code – ME-6992B
Grade – High school

The Advanced Structures Set includes additional components for building a wider variety of structures. Build larger trusses, bridges, and even a working catapult! The included axles and pulleys make it possible to build working cranes, cars, and other structures.

As with all Structures Systems, Load Cells (sold separately) can be placed anywhere in the structure, allowing you to measure the tension and compression forces acting on a specific point. PASPORT Load Cells require an amplifier and interface to connect to a computer’s USB port.
