building bridges at the navy museum

not figuratively, but literally.
we learned the history of the CBs or US navy’s construction battalion and how they build bridges.
the big girls worked as part of a team to design and build a bridge,
while the little ones explored tension and compression,
then designed, built and tested their own custom pontoon boats
to withstand the stress and load of little lego pirates.
