No glue—no mortar. Structures so strong they’ve “held up” for over 1,700 years. With this hands-on kit, students learn how force vector analysis is used in architectural strength—just like the ancient Roman structures. Students first analyze the Roman arch, the caternary arch and the corbeled arch. They then use the blocks provided to build a model Roman arch. How strong is the structure? You’ll have fun testing its strength. How about a bridge-building contest?
Comes complete with blocks, detailed instructions and historical perspectives.
