Budding Engineers

Mrs Tomlinson saw some very promising civil engineering work in her class, as the children worked together to build various bridges using the wonderful Polydron Bridges class set.  The children explored the various types of bridge that we see in the world around us, and then had the opportunity to build some of these bridges.  The children worked in small groups, each group building one of the following bridges:

      • Warren Truss Bridge
      • Pratt Truss Bridge
      • Cantilever Bridge
      • Suspension Bridge
      • Cable-Stay Bridge
      • Drawbridge
