From ancient empires to modern times, bridges have shaped communities and built
civilizations. The importance of bridges in history and understanding how engineers utilize physical science concepts when building a bridge are compelling reasons to study bridges. Bridge Builders focuses on the three most important bridge styles – beam, arch, and suspension. The essential components of each style are demonstrated using the bridges at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park as real and functioning examples. The advantages and disadvantages of each style of bridge are demonstrated.
Rainforest Rescuers takes students into a thriving coastal rainforest to learn about its
ecosystem and the delicate balance and interdependence of its flora and fauna. Through this greater understanding, students are challenged to do whatever they can in their daily lives to rescue these vital rainforests.
