Event description

Description

Join us to celebrate National Science Week at this children’s event in the heart of Western Sydney. The Parramatta River was once a major barrier for the expansion of the settlement to the north. Early wooden bridges were soon washed away in floods. A reliable, sandstone arch bridge was constructed by David Lennox, using convict labour, to overcome this problem.

In this highly interactive and engaging activity children will explore the development of bridge construction techniques through the ages. They will then set off on an easy walk to see the various types of bridge that now span the Parramatta River and discover their modes of construction. Children will then test their own construction skills, as they build an arch bridge, a span bridge and a truss bridge.

This program is aimed at primary school aged children. $5 per person. Bookings are essential. Saturday 19 August from 2.00-4.30pm
