OSSINING, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – The new Tappan Zee Bridge is being used as a teaching tool at schools all across the Hudson Valley.
As WCBS 880’s Sean Adams reported, officials involved in the project are hoping to inspire students.
New NY Bridge spokesman Brian Conybeare has been touring schools across the Hudson Valley to talk about the project. A recent presentation was recently held at Ossining High School.
“We want to inspire the next generation of bridge builders, the next generation of engineers and architects. We want young people here in the Hudson Valley to know that this exciting project is going on right in their backyard and they can learn from it,” Conybeare told Adams. “Perhaps inspire them to study engineering, science, technology, math in college.”
