Catching Up with NNYB Educational Outreach
We heard there were cool exhibits last weekend at Scarsdale Middle School. Educational outreach was there with a cross-section of sheathing that goes around the stay cables, a model of the bridge’s towers and a jacket worn by Safety Sam (front corner of table).
He smiled for our camera at the Tarrytown Outreach center, where we saw him in full gear. By the way, if you’r curious about how educational outreach started, click here for clues.
Friday was a busy day at Liberty Elementary school, where the outreach team visited students for the fourth year and was serenaded with a bridge song. Those kids got it going: last year they threw a birthday party for the current bridge.
The viewing areas in Tarrytown and Nyack have Spotter’s Guides like in the photo above so you can match the vessel images with the equipment you see working on the project. How? Those hi-powered lenses guide your eyes clear across the river.
I’d like to know what you think.
