Who : Key Stage 2 & 3
When : Monday to Friday
What : Using a series of demonstrations from Life’s theatre show ‘Great Geordie Bridges’ as local inspiration for the important role of civil engineers, the pupils will be set a series of bridge related challenges to be worked on in small groups. Using a variety of materials their bridges will be tested to destruction. Students will be encouraged to learn from their immediate past successes or failures and modify their designs in order to better rise to the next challenge.
We’ll also demonstrate that Civil Engineering is a great career for girls.
