Mola Structural Kit II: Another Way to Learn About Structures

Mola Structural Kit II: Another Way to Learn About Structures

Mola, creator of the Mola Structural Kit, is back at it with a second interactive structural kit aimed at changing the way people study and teach structures around the world. Mola sold over 4000 of their first kit across more than 50 countries in 2014, and now you can back the newest expansion on Brazilian crowdfunding website Catarse.

Mola 2 includes 144 pieces and a bilingual manual to expand on and broaden the possibilities of Mola 1, encouraging users to be even more creative and innovative. To that end, the makers have developed new adjustable length bars, lightweight connectors, and continuous connection parts that are fully compatible with the components from Mola 1.

Mola 1 enjoyed enthusiastic reception, becoming the most successful crowdfunding campaign in Brazil at the time of its release. The idea for the Mola Structural Kit originated with Brazilian architect Márcio Sequeira de Oliveira, who validated the accuracy of the model's behavior in his master's thesis at the Federal University of Ouro Preto in Minas Gerais, Brazil.
