Join Learning By Design in Massachusetts at BSA Space for an event that's all about bridges. During this program, families will learn about the many bridge types that span Boston’s waterways, then design and build their own bridge for the neighborhood using recycled materials. This is the third event in the series of Family Design Day programs, which encourage children and adults to observe, explore and design together. In these two hour hands-on workshops, families are introduced to architecture and design through exhibit tours, walking tours or slide shows, and then complete a hands-on design activity. Architects and design educators lead the activities focused on the built environment of Boston and the world. Programs start promptly. Registration is strongly recommended. Sat., Nov. 16, 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Ages 5-13 with adult accompanying (maximum of 1 adult per 3 children). $8 per person. BSA Space, 290 Congress St., 2nd floor, Boston.
