Overview

Curiously Satisfying Science of Structures for the Curious Character: A Workbook is a mostly "mathless" workbook designed to develop thinking about the nature of structural design. Students are given miniature laboratories, experiments, and puzzling problems. The lessons lead to a bridge building activity. This book works wonderfully for any balsa wood bridge building program in schools or summer education programs. The material has been used for gifted grade school kids as well as adolescents. Even adults will find the material amusing and possibly challenging. Written by a civil engineer and educator, the problems will help a person think conceptually about structures in a way they may not have before.
