Model Railroad Museum – 3rd-6th Live Virtual field trip/workshop

San Diego Model Railroad Museum – Live Virtual Workshop for grades 3rd-6th – Monday, November 16

The Able Arch & the Trusty Truss
What makes arches and triangles so strong? Students will learn about both the physical science and history of arch and truss bridges. Students will perform four experiments to investigate the inherent strength of these shapes and understand why civil engineers frequently use them in the design and construction of structures in general and bridges in particular. Leveled content, including a student assessment, accompanies the program.

TLC students in grades 3rd-6th can participate in this Live Virtual field trip/workshop presented by an educator from the San Diego Model Railroad Museum (SDMRM). The SDMRM will supply program material packets, and the parents of registered student participants will need to arrange to pick up their materials packet from TLC prior to the workshop. A link will be shared with registered students to join from their computers.
