Raise Tower Bridge - on-site

Raise Tower Bridge (on-site)

This is the information page for our on-site Raise Tower Bridge workshop. For our on-line Raise Tower Bridge with Scratch workshop please click here

Visit Tower Bridge with your class and discover how this iconic structure opens to passing boats, and how technology has changed in its lifetime.

Pupils will work together in small teams to build a model of Tower Bridge to understand the Bridge's engineering and how modern-day coding can be used to make it open. The workshop culminates in pupils writing and inputting the code required to raise the roads of a miniature Tower Bridge!
