The Advanced Structures Set includes additional components for building a wider variety of structures. Build larger trusses, bridges, and even a working catapult! The included axles and pulleys make it possible to build working cranes, cars, and other structures listed within the Advanced Structures Kit Manual, which can be downloaded from the documents tab.
As with all Structures Systems, Load Cells (sold separately) can be placed anywhere in the structure, allowing you to measure the tension and compression forces acting on a specific point. PASPORT Load Cells require an amplifier and interface to connect to a computer's USB port.

How It Works
Build larger bridges, as well as cranes, catapults and towers: This set provides many more I-beams and necessary connections, making larger and more varied bridges possible. The set also includes axles and pulleys for building and studying working cranes.
Add measurements to your system: Load Cells provide you the means to accurately measure tension and compression in real-time—anywhere in your structure! You build the Load Cell right into your structure where you want it—and easily relocate it without disassembling the entire structure.
Collect data on your choice of interfaces: Load cells connect to a load cell amplifier which can then be connected to any current PASCO interface.
