Bridge Designer

POP students are challenged to use Bridge Designer to engineer a cost-effective truss bridge that will support a two-lane highway across the river valley.

The City of Carrollton is expanding its planning department to meet the growing needs of the city. They are hiring a structural engineer, who will be responsible for designing a bridge to meet the needs of their growing infrastructure.

POP students are among the final candidates! The problem is that the last tax increase did not get approved and now they have to build the bridge with a smaller budget.

How will thee POP students design a bridge that is safe, sturdy, and within the budgeted amount?


Code Combat-Writing Code

Like people, computers have their own language they use to communicate. Computers use a written language called source code  to work, and humans can tell computers to do things by writing source code.

Source code is a language that contains numbers, symbols, and words. In Code Combat players are able to explore, learn, and practice three different script languages including the popular Python and JavaScript, and an experimental code called CoffeeScript.
