That's for the great review of Bridges and Tunnels, Mama's Bacon!
"Bridges and tunnels are lifelines." Oh, so true! ...Bridges and Tunnels, focuses on the amazing history and triumphs of engineering of the Golden Gate bridge. It is quite a fascinating read as well as being a great book that supports STEM. The book discusses why the engineer, Joseph S. Strauss was so concerned about safety when designing the Golden Gate due to the high levels of earthquakes in the San Francisco area. Can you build a bridge that could withstand an earthquake? GULP! This is a fantastic read that does focus on the importance of math and a small look into the world of engineering. Two thumbs up!
Did you know? On May 27, 1937, the Golden Gate Bridge first opened to the public!
Check it out! Here is a cool supplemental educational activity on seismology!
