On May 24, 1883 . . . that’s 129 years ago. . . the now-famous Brooklyn Bridge was opened.
Being in the heart of Brooklynites, the locals celebrate the day across the coming weekend.
Consider checking out the lesson plans [at the link above] based on THE BRIDGE, to bring engineering alive and into the lives of students.
Consider the leadership that was needed to take on such a project. Please share your personal memories of the bridge. Did great civil engineering achievements like this inspire you to become civil engineers. . . .if not, then what attracted you to the civil engineering profession?
