Students can explore the effect that beam dimensions and shape have on structure flexibility and strength, investigate how trusses distribute weight, and ultimately build and test their own designs.

This tester gives teachers a great way to motivate their students when it is used for engineering activities and competitions with the free Vernier Go Direct® Bridge Competition Software.

For more advanced investigations, students can combine the sensor displacement data to evaluate the strengths of materials by determining the modulus of elasticity of different materials.

The tester also includes the NGSS-aligned Materials Testing: Beams to Bridges e-book, providing engaging engineering activities to get started.

This product should be available early 2020 pending product release and Australian compliance testing
