Program Description


Calling all teens! There are many ways to build bridges.  Just look at the way concrete overpasses that weigh tons are supported by thin, narrow columns, or how the Golden Gate Bridge is gracefully suspended by thin cables over miles and miles of water.  Yet these bridges are meant to withstand thousands of pounds and even earthquakes without collapsing.  How do engineers do that?  Learn how to build reliable, sturdy structures using only household items.  For teens ages 14-19. Registration required
