EDUCATIONAL KITS IN THE CLASSROOM: LEARN BY TESTING

One of the main problems the learning of the structures finds, is the visualization of the strains of the elements and the displacements and rotation of the connections, once the system receives the load. The simulation of the strain of architectural models can be observed through different computer programs, which allow the modification of different parameters and the verification of the changes that originate at the deformations of the models.

In the Escuelas Técnicas Superiores de Edificación and Ingeniería Civil of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, a new experience that aims the student to experiment with a real physical interactive model that simulates the behavior of architectural structures has been carried out. The material used, Mola Kit Structural, is formed by a set of modular pieces that allow innumerable combinations, which facilitates the construction of different structural systems, as well as the visualization of the movements and strains of the elements. The activity constitutes a sensory experience with structural behavior, which the student implements using their own hands. The management of the structure model is simple and intuitive and does not require prior technical knowledge, so it is a good tool to start studying the construction of structural systems.

Therefore, weekly workshops have been carried out where the student reproduces different solutions and constructive systems and observes the strain at the moment. Subsequently, they have made educational videos of the solutions studied, where he has been the understanding of these concepts.
