Have you ever wondered who makes sure our buildings, roads, and bridges are safe? An engineer, that’s who! First, assemble your activity kit at home. Then, join a Whitaker Center educator to learn all about engineering, work together to design different bridges, and examine their structure and form! A recording of the program will be available after the program if individuals are not able to tune into the live session.
