Program Description


How do engineers ensure that bridges and other structures can support weight properly so that they don't collapse?  This week, we'll use uncooked spaghetti noodles to explore the forces that come into play when weight is applied to a beam.  This program is recommended for children in grades 1-5. This program is made possible by the Friends of the First Colony Branch Library.
