PASCO’s Structure Systems offer a realistic, hands-on method for students to design and create life-like structures in the classroom. Perfect for design-based experimentation, these systems range in complexity from single trusses to dynamic kits. This page explains and compares all of our Structure System options and accessories for your convenience.
Perform the following experiments and more with the Thin I-Beams.

In this lab, a Three-Point Bend Test is performed on the ABS plastic beams included with the PASCO Structures System. Then, the Flexural Elastic Modulus for the material is calculated.
In this lab, a Tensile Test is performed on plastic beams and Young's Modulus is measured. Students test beams with varying cross-sectional shapes to investigate the effect, if any, shape has on the outcome of the experiment.
