Experts visit Grade 8 for Bridge Design Day

Today, students in the 8th grade received expert advice on their bridge building projects from engineers who specialize in bridge construction and design. Avonworth Middle School welcomed engineers from the Michael Baker International and  PennDot District 11. Students are working on a project in science class that requires them to design a sturdy yet cost effective bridge. 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,www.HaskinsSci8.info.
