Midwest Products Boomilever Kit

The Boomilever Kit can be used to train teams of students to compete in the Science Olympiad. Each year, over 14,000 teams from 45 US states and Canada compete in the Science Olympiad's Boomilever competition.

Elementary, middle school, and high school teams compete to design and build the lightest cantilevered wooden structure which, when attached to a vertical testing wall at one end, will support a load up to 15 kg (33 lb) at the distal end.

Rules of the competition state that the Boomilever must be a single structure constructed only of pieces of wood no larger than ¼" (6 mm) high and ¼" (6 mm) wide in cross-section and bonded by glue.

The Boomilever Kit teaches kids how to design and build a cantilevered structure. The kit includes:

  • Informational CD
  • Information on the National Science standards that this product satisfies
  • Web links
  • Full-size plan
  • Enough balsa and basswood strips and glue for 15 students
  • Teacher’s guide
