The brief explored in this project for Technology was the following,
Explore what considerations engineers have to consider when designing and constructing bridges.
Research the following types of bridges, beam, suspension, cantilever and arch bridges.
For the design and construction of their bridges year 7 pupils have studied the key developments, advances and materials used in the construction of iconic bridges throughout history.
Some pupils have worked on their own and others in pairs. Bridges have been accompanied by examples of research, mini maquettes and sketches.
These are currently on display in the school parlour.
