What keeps bridges from falling down? Students listen to a read-aloud engineering tale to learn about the science and mechanics of bridges, then think like engineers to create their own designs over a model stream. After testing their bridges against real-life challenges, students work as a group to build a giant bridge right in the classroom.

Children must be at least four years of age to participate.

Fee: $375 for 1 session, $100 for additional same-day sessions. Travel fees may apply.
