Every Saturday throughout September, The Fleet presents Bridges
Tinkering Studio Coordinator Bruce Gemmell is an architect who will share his knowledge of building bridges. Learn the fascinating history and nature of bridges, the integral concepts underlying their construction and the various types of bridges in common uses today.
Challenge Saturday, the last Saturday of each month, will culminate in two visitor contests. Build bridges to cross our challenging chasm and compete in an ultimate strength challenge to see whose bridge will support the most weight OR explore the ratio of strength to load-bearing capability (or whose bridge can support the most times its own weight).
Activities included with admission.
