Here’s one for all you engineers out there: what happens when a structure lacks integrity? Structural integrity ensures that the structure has the capacity to carry its intended load—and then some. When a structure lacks integrity, or if there is a structural failure, then catastrophe can occur. Think about how much we rely on the structural integrity of a bridge as we drive over it—how many thousands of cars over years and years must that bridge be able to handle without failing?
Now think about an ill-designed bridge—how do you feel? Would you drive over it? Structurally soundness provides is huge is preventing all kinds of accidents. When my preschooler is building something or climbing up on something, we often prompt her, “Do you feel safe?” In other words, “Does that structure have integrity?”
Okay, why all the STEAM talk, you’re wondering? Well, how do you feel around people
