Railroad Bridge Engineering

Railroad Bridge Engineering

There are thousands of railroad bridges in the United States, and the science behind each is fascinating. During this overnight adventure, participants in the Railroad Bridge Engineering program will learn about the basics of bridge engineering. In addition, the program offers participants an opportunity to work in teams to construct a bridge to given specifications. Bridges will be tested to determine who constructed the best one.

The Railroad Bridge Engineering program is recommended for ages 9 and older. Group sizes typically run from 16 to 50 people. Participants arrive at 5:30 p.m. and stay overnight, with the program concluding at 9:30 a.m. the next morning. The program is offered in January, February, March and October.


$45 per person for overnight programming (minimum of 16 participants or equivalent payment) OR $15 per person for the 3-hour daytime programming.
