On April 28, 2016, TPDers in our Pottstown office were joined by 19 of their children for an interactive day of learning and fun in honor of National Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day! The agenda included learning more about the services TPD provides, specifically bridge design and inspection, followed by a computer game demonstrating the importance of designing and building structurally sound bridges. That knowledge was then put into action by the construction of K’nex bridges of various sizes and complexities. The children were also taught about the importance of transportation planning, with regard to safety and traffic volumes. The day ended with two additional activities: a cardboard tube run, testing patience and trial and error, as well as a foil boat competition; the sturdiest boat held nearly 80 pennies total! It was a successful day that included both fun and learning, and of course, cupcakes!
