NUSTEM loans boxes are linked to STEM careers and contain original objects and replicas that can be handled and used as part of classroom activities. While using the resources in the boxes, children get the opportunity to try out and explore some of the skills, techniques, equipment and ideas that STEM professionals use on a day-to-day basis.
Our Structural Engineering loans box has the kit needed to challenge a class, club or group to design and build a bridge from Knex, then test it using the weights provided. Who will build the strongest bridge?
