Building bridges at school.

STUDENTS at Yarm School have been building bridges with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE).

ICE North East paid a visit to Yarm School as part of its Bridges to Schools project, which teaches youngsters about bridge construction, teamwork and civil engineering.

A group of 25 fourth year students at Yarm School took part in the bridge building programme, which incorporated maths, science and design and technology, as students worked with representatives from ICE to assemble its 13-metre scaled model cable-stayed bridge.

The bridge is used as a learning tool to give young people an insight into civil engineering, and allows pupils direct contact with professionals who can help them to understand more about careers.
