Mola Structural Kits are great tools for architects, engineers, educators, students, or any curious mind to explore and realistically simulate different structural systems.
Get the three Mola sets to discover a playful and tangible way to learn about connections, tension members, columns, beams, frames, trusses, cantilevers, stayed columns, grids, geodesics, funicular shapes, cable net systems, stayed and suspension bridges, tensegrity, form-finding, and more.
Enjoy plenty of room to flex your creativity muscles!
What's in the boxes

We purchased these kits for the architects and engineers at our company to use as a teaching tool with elementary and middle school students. As soon as the kits arrived, the architects began to build and the engineers "applied force" to show why their structure would not stand. It has sparked some lively discussion and is helping everyone to be able to understand and verbalize the concepts of structural engineering. The bracing wires are fairly easy to get tangled and some of the pieces are quite small, so I agree with the suggested age recommendation, especially if without adult supervision.
Globally, all three equipments are good enough for our pedagogical needs.
The magnetism is good, the functionality is correct for ELASTICITY and TENSEGRITY applications.
Also we are able to use it to explain other properties in mechanics and structure. A good material for various applications.
We hope the materials nature can make it durable for many years, so we could just need to add complementary packages of Mola kits in order to increase our material's warehouse. The only bad comment is on the ratio price/quantity, which seems bad for a university, perhaps it should be interesting to allow a particular discount to educational institutes.
Thanks and regards
Hi Franck, thanks a lot for the feedback! This give us a great insight about your structural experiece with Mola. We really appreciate it as will also help us improve and provide a better purchasing experience, especially for Universities.
