Explore the multitude of disciplines required to build a model railroad. Working from a track plan, campers will construct an operational, themed scale model, from track laying, ballasting, scenery construction, and circuitry.


Campers will investigate and apply design principles, research unusual railroad cars, and learn why engineers use arches in the construction of railroad bridges. Scaffolded activities accommodate students of different ages.
