Building Bridges in the Community

Bridge building exercise with 20th Birkenhead Scouts

We have been working with the 20th Birkenhead Scouts, carrying out a structural assessment of their scout hut. Last week one of our Associates, Liam Heyes, ran a session with the Scouts talking about structural engineering and running a practical exercise building bridges with paper straws and tape; the bridges were then weight tested to see which design was the strongest.

The event seemed to be thoroughly enjoyed by all;

‘Thank you so much for last night Liam, the scouts were very excited. Parents at our meeting tonight said their children came home buzzing telling them how much they enjoyed the evening.’ – Yvonne, Scout Leader
