Bridges 4 Schools project

We are grateful to BAM Nuttall and Mott MacDonald for providing the opportunity to 60 Year 7 students to gain an introduction to engineering. We had an amazing day building bridges; this included a full sized bridge and a huge amount of K'NEX to help them understand how bridges are structured.

The students, who were very enthusiastic, worked really well with the engineers and were extremely pleased when most of their K'NEX bridges managed to hold a weight of up to 5kg, however some of the star performers were able to withstand a load of up to 20kg - even the engineers were impressed!
