Building model bridges from balsa wood is a great way to get students engaged in technology, science, and engineering principles. This Getting Started package includes materials for 25 students, testing equipment, and curriculum to get your classroom into bridge building.
Looking for standards-based activities to accompany these materials? The Balsa Bridges Teacher's Guide is available for print here, or you can download a digital copy for free here.
