About this event

Give your child the chance to build a real-life bridge with the Institute of Civil Engineers and Alun Griffiths Civil Engineering. Groups of 8-12 year olds will have an hour to build a 17m long replica of the Second Severn Crossing – and even have the chance to test its strength by walking across it!

Led by professional engineers, the children will be split into two teams and allocated roles. The teams will build the suspension bridge from the outer edges, meeting in the middle. This is a great way to explore the creativity of engineering and meet professional engineers.

This event is FREE and open to all but you must book in advance.

Sunday 16th September 2018 – 10am to 4pm
