Civil Engineering - Home Learners

Run by Engineering For Kids






Tagged in: Kids, Science & Tech, After School, Arts & Crafts

During the Civil Engineering classes, students use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and refine a balsa wood bridge designed to withstand the greatest force. They examine several different types of bridge designs and discover how the forces of tension, compression, bending, torsion, and shear are distributed throughout their structures. Your children will learn about building up, building sideways and testing those builds.
