September Website

Building Big

Building Big is an exciting website based on the PBS series of the same name.  Learn about bridges, domes, skyscrapers, dams, and tunnels, along with how they are designed and built.  Discover examples of these architectural wonders from around the world, including the Brooklyn Bridge, Pantheon, Eiffel Tower, Hoover Dam, and Channel Tunnel.  In the website's building lab, learn about the forces, materials, shapes, and loads that are involved in these structures.  Meet  professionals from the fields of engineering.  Then test your new found knowledge by completing one of the building challenges.  When you are all finished online, come into the library and check out David Macauly's companion book, Building Big (J720 MAC).
