Report: Mad Science Engineering Workshops

6th July 2009

Throughout June and July Mad Science are working with more than 2,000 children from the First and Middle Schools around Frome introducing them to engineering through fun workshops.

Brilliant Bridges

Shown here, children from St. John’s First School get to grips with the ideas behind different bridges types & impress the Mad Science Instructor with their detailed knowledge of Benjamin Baker and the Forth Bridge. Then, using simple materials, try their hand at some bridge building.

This project has been made possible through the generosity of the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Institution of Structural Engineers, the Happold Trust, Mann Williams Engineers & Michael Hadi Associates.
