Farrat Academy – How to build a Cantenary Arch Bridge

Homeschooling STEM activities from Farrat to enjoy with your little engineers

In Lockdown 3.0 we understand that home schooling is tough.  If you’re looking for something a bit different, the team at Farrat are putting together a few STEM ideas for the next generation of engineers and scientists, and we’re probably looking to have a little fun too.

Here’s Marketing Manager Charlene Giles showing you how to build a Cantenary Arch Bridge with children of all ages.  She’s used building blocks with her toddler but you could also use duplo or lego.  Cantenary Arch Bridges are used around the world, and famous examples include St Pauls’ dome and King’s College Chapel in Cambridge,

We hope you enjoyed driving your trains and cars under a Cantenary Arch Bridge!

We’d love to see photos of your project so please email us your photos.

If you liked building a bridge, maybe you’d like to build your own moving car to drive underneath it?
