Bridge builders (on-site)

Turn your students into bridge building engineers in this new on-site workshop. 

Through hands-on experiments, pupils will discover why Tower Bridge is made up of three different types of bridge and discuss the different strengths and weaknesses of each design. The workshop culminates in pupils putting their learning into practice to build a bridge to match a real-world brief.
