Civil engineers design structures like buildings, bridges and dams. The tallest building in the world stands 2700 feet tall - that's over half a mile! How do civil engineers think and plan for such structures? In this program, participants learn the science of building structures and take baby steps towards working like a civil engineer to design structures using simple materials. May the forces be with them on this awesome mission of close encounters with the “all fall down” gravity, thrilling balancing acts, bridging designs and the quest to make the tallest skyscraper! Will their designs survive the mighty weight, wind and earthquake?
