Science Kits for Teens ；Chain Bridge
Are there any good science kits for teens? The Chain Bridge is a good choice for kids. It’s a physics and engineering kit.
Chain bridge is a kind of bridge in which the main girder is directly pulled on the bridge tower with many cables. It is a structural system which is combined with the pressure tower, the tension cables and the bending beam body.The two piers of the cable-stayed bridge support the weight of the whole bridge body, and the weight of the whole deck is evenly distributed on the two piers through the cable, so as to ensure the balance of the force on the deck.
Warning: It must be accompanied by a parent or teacher while assembling.

Chain bridge came into being after the Second World War. At that time, the former Federal Republic of Germany was full of war ruins. How to restore the thousands of destroyed bridges was really a thorny problem. In the case of absolute need, German bridge engineers have created a new type of bridge – cable-stayed bridge. In this way, it can not only match the financial budget in investment, but also bear the increasing traffic volume in intensity.
The cable-stayed bridge is a kind of long and thin pavement made of steel or prestressed concrete, which is partially supported by thin steel wire. The rest of the support comes from the strength of the bridge deck and the girder itself. Therefore, it can save 50% steel compared with the ordinary suspension bridge.
