We use the phrase “building bridges” to connote creating a relationship, but these iconic, artistic, and fantastic feats of everyday engineering have helped establish the foundations of our world—connecting civilizations and expanding our domains.

 

This enlightening edition of COBBLESTONE Magazine introduces your budding builders to the various brilliant bridges around the country. Discover where bridges are built, the various types of bridges that can be built, and how builders know which kind of bridge to build where. Your emerging engineers can experiment with building their own different types of bridges in their home—even testing them to see how well they hold up under the pressure of weights. Get to famous bridge designers and tour some of the most iconic bridges, and bridge-cities in the US. Plus, examine how major mistakes just help us make better bridges, see some truly unique bridges from around the world, and learn how you can find bridges all over the place if you just know what to look for.
