My Bridgeneering lessons are finished and it was really really super great. There was nothing about it that I didn’t like – the whole thing was the best. If I could make one of the bridges in real life, I would make the Tower Bridge. It’s a bascule and suspension bridge. That means it has parts that go up and down like a drawbridge. I also made the Story Bridge that’s a cantilever bridge; the Sydney Harbour Bridge which is an arch bridge; and a beam bridge. I think the bridge we go over to Redcliffe is a beam bridge – it’s long and flat.
For the beam bridge, it was so long it went from one wall of the classroom to the other and the whole class worked on it together. For the other bridges, we worked in pairs. Everyone there was really kind and funny and everyone just love building bridges so we all worked really well together. We all liked the same things as each other so everyone got on really well.
My favourite person was the teacher, Justin. He knows so many interesting things and I just love learning from him.
When I grow up I want to design and build bridges but I also want to do all the other types of engineering too! Thanks AAAF for sending me to Bridgeneering!
