Your mission — should you choose to accept it — is to explore the museum and gain as much knowledge as possible!
Most bridges wouldn’t fit into the museum but you can find a lot of forces at play on different structures everywhere. Come search the museum for forces acting on different artifacts, both big and small!
This scavenger hunt booklet, all about forces acting on structures, help guide you and your students to fun and learning as you discover all that our galleries have to offer. Remember, youth 12 years and under must always be accompanied by an adult.
