Building Bridges – Roma Agrawal – Family Session

Family Session

Roma will share three of her favourite bridges with you, and tell you how they were built! Her very first project as a structural engineer was a footbridge in Newcastle which she had to make sure wouldn’t wobble. She will also share the story of her engineering hero who was behind the Brooklyn Bridge in New York, and tell you how to make your own yummy bridge with jelly babies!
