Description

This activity is closed to further registration.

Understanding the World's Greatest Structures: Science and Innovation from Antiquity to Modernity Our world is filled with structures that have stood the test of time. While structures such as the Giza pyramids, Brunelleschi?s dome, and the Brooklyn Bridge are visual spectacles in and of themselves, they are just as important for the way they were designed as for the way they look. Delivered by award-winning Professor Stephen Ressler of the United States Military Academy at West Point, a civil engineer and a nationally honored leader in engineering education, these 24 lectures take you on a fascinating and richly illustrated tour that deftly blends history and science to create an unforgettable survey of our world?s most remarkable structural masterpieces. Couple this with 3-D animations that re-create and allow you to take apart individual pieces of great structures, and you have an engaging learning experience that will change the way you think about the buildings around you. Facilitator: Beth Stence.


Fee: none.
