Bridge Experts Visit AMS 8

Yesterday, students in the 8th grade received expert advice on their bridge building projects from engineers who specialize in bridge construction, design, and inspection. Avonworth Middle School welcomed engineers from the Michael Baker Corporation, HDR, and PennDot District 11. Students are working on a project in science class that requires them to design a replacement bridge for the o​ne currently being constructed along Camp Horne Road in Emsworth. Students will build their structures out of plastic drinking straws, hot glue, and fishing line. Progress on the project can be viewed on our webpage,
