The science of building

The Art of Construction: Projects and Principles for Beginning Engineers & Architects
by Mario Salvadori

With this book, kids can create all kinds of models with straws, paper, tongue depressors, balloons, and string. As they build, they'll learn about the laws of equilibrium, demonstrate the principles of tension and compression, and see what makes bridges and buildings stand up.

An excellent book.
