Bridging Art and Engineering: Two Bridges over Mystic
11/12/2022 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Saturday November 12, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the KTJ Studios
A one-day workshop for ages 10-15 with Jeff Crew, a professional exhibit designer and maker of machines and mechanical art.
Bridge building involves not only physical science concepts such as forces and strength of materials, but also design, drawing and hands on construction and testing. This workshop is a fantastic hands-on opportunity for students to gain an understanding of how structures are made to work as bridges, and an appreciation of our local engineering marvels. Includes visit to the Mystic Bascule Bridge and our current exhibitions, 100 Years of the Mystic River and the Bascule Bridge, and Building Bridges
Members $60/ Non-member $75. Special Group Pricing: 45$/child for school/homeschool groups of 7 or more students. Maximum number of students is limited to 15.
