What makes arches and triangles so strong? Students will learn about both the physical science and history of arch and truss bridges. Students will perform five experiments to investigate the inherent strength of these shapes and understand why civil engineers frequently use them in the design and constructions of structures in general and bridges in particular. Leveled content, including a student assessment accompany the workshop.


We offer two versions of this program to accommodate students at different grade levels.
