Everyone Engineers: Designing Bridges: Balance, Forces, and Civil Engineering

Kinzua Bridge State Park Visitors Center 296 Viaduct Road, Mt Jewett, PA 16740
February 10, 2017 @ 9:00am - 2:30pm

When civil engineers design bridges, they must take into account factors like balance and motion.  This unit introduces the principals behind bridge design with the storybook Javier Builds a Bridge, about a boy who needs a safe footbridge to get to his island play fort.  Participants will reinforce their understanding of "push" and "pull" as they explore how forces act on different structures.
