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.
