“The Golden Gate Bridge project, through a number of innovative strategies, clearly is advancing the public’s awareness and understanding of science and engineering. The Bridge is an international icon, visited by millions, and now with NSF funding, the south side visitor area has come alive with interactive educational exhibits.
With continued development, the project is wonderfully positioned to be a model for similar efforts around the country that seek to use public works facilities as environments for education.”
