Product Details

The ÜBERARC™ 1200 Empire State Building is part of the architectural series, designed for students, architects, engineers, and anyone else who just loves to build! Using full-scale authentic blueprints, builders create a foundation and representation of the Empire State Building. The fun begins when you apply for a building permit online that will show the seismic and wind loads for your proposed UberArc Empire State Building location. You can even pinpoint the location on a map and create your own unique building name displayed to other UberArc builders! This architectural dream set will teach basic building techniques to create load-bearing walls, curves, arches and more. The completed UberArc Empire State Building is more than 4 feet tall.

 Ages 10+

Uberstix Award Winning construction kits are proven sellers that are engineered to work independently and/or integrate with all other major build systems including Lego, Zoobs, Zomes, and K'nex, as well as with recyclable materials. We tell kids to think outside the box. Finally, a toy that invites it! With Uberstix, kids are inspired to think, experiment and stretch their imagination to create buildings and structures that are taller than themselves, bridges that support working trains, boats that float and sail, planes that fly, and UberFo's that hover. Uberstix inspires creativity while teaching kids basic to advanced concepts in geometry, math, engineering and basic physics. Flexible components allow for working hinges, levers and other simple machines. Interlocking parts mate to form structures, foundations, pillars and cross bracing that is the cornerstone of great architecture.

Building with construction toys helps kids develop spatial awareness, problem solving skills, patience, imagination and self confidence along with many other important academic and life skills, but never before Uberstix has a build system encouraged young builders to experiment with and improve on the basic designs. With the Uberpult for example, building it is just the beginning. The kit includes a lab sheet and twice as many parts as are needed for the basic structure, with suggestions for testing the catapult with different features. Kids write down what they think will happen and then what actually happened. It teaches them to run experiments and make improvements. These types of experiments introduce basic physics and engineering in a way that gets kids fully engaged.
