Engineering Technology - Structures and Materials Teaching Set
The Structures and Materials package offers student activities to investigate the science and technology behind the built environment.

The equipment included enables students to explore beam designs and then perform destructive testing on them to analyze the properties of their materials and the performance of their design.

The trainer can also be used in conjunction with our Optional Cloud-based Software , which offers online practical electronics tasks as well as interactive theory presentations, investigations, and assessments, which link directly to the practical activities carried out using this resource.

Typical Practical Activities Include:
  • Identify the forces that act on structures
