The Standing Arch Kit is composed of seven wooden blocks that when properly assembled produce the shape of the catenary arch. This kit engages students to learn engineering concepts such as force balancing and load transfer through the assembly of the arch.
The kit shows students how vaulted arches and types of bridges are constructed, and how they are able to bear the weight of buildings and roadways they hold up. By playing with the various blocks, young learners can understand the importance of the keystone in holding up the arch.

The kit includes a hook for the attachment of the hanger and masses from the Eisco Hanging Mass Kit (GP00002) to demonstrate a live load. Alternatively, one can attach a Force Sensor to the hook to measure the amount of weight the arch can hold up.
