“Building Bridges” Engineering Challenge

Learn about Structural Engineering and the life changing impact of bridges. Learn how safe and useable bridges can be made from a myriad of materials – including tree roots! Finally, learn about the positive impacts that a bridge can have on a community, especially those that are remote with limited accessibility.

Available as a 1 day school incursion for year 8-10 students. Akorn also offer this as part of Teacher Professional Learning.
