Shupper-Brickle President, Andrew Litecky, volunteered to speak about the physics of hoisting, pulleys, and mechanical advantage at the Emily Warren Roebling Engineering Summer Camp in Roebling, New Jersey. The camp, sponsored by PSE&G and the Give Back Foundation, invited eleven to thirteen-year-olds to explore the mechanics of bridge building and other engineering principles at the Roebling Museum, the historic site of the former Roebling mill and wire rope factory.
“It’s always a pleasure to share my everyday knowledge and experience with the next generation. You never know what might spark their imagination and inspire future engineers,” said Mr. Litecky
The Roebling Museum, located in central New Jersey, shares the history of the family who pioneered the design of suspensions bridges and catalogs the culture of a small factory town. It is open to the public and hosts various educational and historical events throughout the year. More information is available on the museum website: www.roeblingmuseum.org
