Annual Bridge Project

Seniors at the Central Virginia Governor’s School participated in our annual Engineering Bridge Project during the first six weeks of the school year.  Students were put into groups and then were able to plan and design a bridge that would span a certain distance based on the route the group chose.  Students researched bridge designs, calculated all the forces that would act on their bridge, created conceptual designs, drew blue prints, provided a cost analysis for their proposed bridge, and even included environmental remediation strategies in their proposal.

New Student Orientation for 2016 is coming soon!
