Engineering for the Family: Civil Engineering

Engineering for the Family: Civil Engineering

Come build with us and learn about civil engineering.  

Have you ever wondered how bridges, buildings and skyscrapers are built?

Join us on Monday, June 17th at 4:00pm at the Fremont Library to find out how all these buildings and structures around us stand so tall? How are the world’s tallest skyscrapers built to withstand all the elements? How was the Golden Gate Bridge built to be earthquake proof? Once you learn the engineering behind it, build your own structures and test it to see if it will withstand the elements.

For children ages 5 and up and their parents.

Supplies and space are limited. Tickets are handed out at the Children’s Area starting 15 minutes before program starts. Due to the high demand during the summer time, we recommend that you arrive early and line up for tickets. Tickets are not guaranteed.

This program is kindly sponsored by Engineering for the Family.
