Dream It and Build It Issue Date: 08-11-2013

Cool Spots imageArchKIDecture, archkidecture.org, is a fun way to learn about math, science and visual arts through architecture. Everyone has seen a unique building or bridge and wondered, “How did they build that?” The Incredible Rolling Bridge in London is a pedestrian bridge that actually curls up into a circle so boats can pass in the canal below it. You can create your own structures in Projects. Make a Sandcastle, then send in a picture of it to be featured on the site. Next time you are at the library, check out some archKID books and get ready to be inspired.

How did you do?
