Budding bridge builders have collected their prizes after participating in a summer of free education activities.
The four prize winners were randomly chosen after taking part in the Rochester Bridge Trust’s All About Bridges event, at Rochester Cathedral.
The event, provided free of charge, included a range of hands-on bridge building activities, with participants collecting stamps on a passport which were then entered into a prize draw.
Annabel-Rose won first prize of a Lego Tower Bridge kit, and Gabrielle’s passport was second out of the hat, so she won a Lego San Francisco kit which includes a model of the Golden Gate Bridge. Beatrix and David won the two runners up prizes of a London Bridge Lego Kit.
All four had completed activities in building arch, beam and truss bridges, as well as constructing a tall tower, and finding education mascot Langdon the Lion’s friends around a record breaking bridge.
Education Manager Caroline Chisholm said: “Everyone at the Trust was pleased to see how well the community engaged with our summer of educational engineering activities, and it was great to meet these four children and present them with their prizes, which we hope will give them and their families many more hours of engineering fun.”
More than 27,000 people visited the Rochester Bridge Trust’s summer education activities, which ran throughout August. Visit www.rbt.org.uk/AllAboutBridges for more information.
