WHY NOT TRY
Famous structures around the world
Civil engineers build many different types of structures. Play our Structures Card Games (matching pairs, game of swop, snap and happy structures) with our set of cards based on famous structures around the world. Which is your favourite? Why not design, and build, your own structure? Will it be a building, a bridge, a tower, a statue or something else?
