This book explores how bridges can unite, link and help people. It also examines how bridges can barricade, obstruct and take people’s lives. Students are encouraged to track how engineering acumen has led to longer, wider and higher bridge designs. It also traces how human error has resulted in famous but tragic bridge collapses.
Filled with practical and curriculum linked activities, Bridges inspires students to design their own bridges and investigate how bridges have been used as symbols and metaphors in popular culture.
