The Hands On Science In-School Science Field Trip for Edmonton and Area brought their Awesome Bridge Workshop to Morinville Public
Elementary School Thursday. Students had four bridges models to construct: stone arch, metal truss, concrete girder and cable suspension
bridge. Using teamwork, each group shared the role of foreman, constructed the four styles of bridges, and had the opportunity to work with different materials and fasteners.

Morinville Public Elementary School students Kennedy Arcand, Harley Walker and Paul Tolsma work on their bridge.
