Tower Bridge is excited to be taking part in The Institution of Engineering’s "Engineering Open House Day" on Friday 3rd August 2018 by running a special 3D design and printing workshop for families, designing a new skyline for London!
We’ll be taking inspiration from the fantastic views from Tower Bridge’s high level walkways before learning how to use a 3D design computer programme to design new buildings to join London’s famous skyline. Later, these buildings will be printed on our 3D printer and posted to participating families as a souvenir of their day.
Families will also have the opportunity to visit the rest of Tower Bridge’s exhibition after the workshop.
Cost : FREE
When: Friday 3rd August, 10:00 – 14:00 (please bring a packed lunch)
Age range: 9 to 14 years, all children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Accessibility: Please note that this workshop will be taking place in a part of the Bridge only accessible by a staircase of 82 steps, without a lift. Unfortunately we are not able to accommodate anyone who is not able to climb these stairs.
