The Golden Gate Bridge: From U.S. History to Physics
Rating

Our goal was to create a unit that explores all aspects of the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge from its conception to the present. The unit explores such things as first-hand stories from the men who devoted years of their lives to the bridge, and the science that has made the bridge such an enduring part of the Pacific Coastline. Students will perform research online as well as study articles written when the bridge was built. They will read about the engineers who are seismically retrofitting the bridge, and in a lab setting they will test the strength of cables made from copper and bicycle wire. By the close of the unit, students should understand the interconnectedness of the world that we live in, especially through the eyes of a historian and a physicist.

The Perseus Digital Library

Perseus is an evolving digital library, engineering interactions through time, space, and language. Our primary goal is to bring a wide range of source materials to as large an audience as possible. We anticipate that greater accessibility to the sources for the study of the humanities will strengthen the quality of questions, lead to new avenues of research, and connect more people through the connection of ideas.
