NOVA | Build a Bridge

Survey the Four Sites  – Three spans are over water, one over land. Each has a different length to be crossed. And, most importantly, each requires a different kind of bridge.

Do your Homework – Brush up on the four kinds of bridges you can choose from—arch, beam, suspension, and cable-stayed. To get a feel for their differences yourself, you can even construct simple models at home or school.

Play the Game – Once you’ve surveyed the sites and reviewed the types of bridges, put on your civil engineer’s hat and build some bridges
