According to the British "Daily Mail" reported on September 20th, the third-grade students of Queen's University Belfast in Northern Ireland used more than 11,000 metal components of the toy brand Meccano in the Lagan River. (River Lagan) built a bridge over 30 meters long, breaking the world record. Trevor Whittaker, a professor at Queen's University in Belfast, personally took the bridge for testing.

The bridge spans the Clarendon Pier on the Lagan River and weighs about 600 kilograms. It consists entirely of Meccano's steel-structured toys, which are fixed using approximately 70,000 nuts and bolts. The Guinness World Records official has confirmed that the bridge has broken the world record and become the world's largest Meccano steel structure.
Professor Whitaker said: "We are training young people, cultivating them to think and cultivating them to have dreams. But it is not enough to have dreams. They need to raise their dreams to a height and let their dreams shine into reality."
The Belfast Bridge project is intended to encourage young people to join the fields of engineering, technology and mathematics. The Belfast Stormont Cultural Department, Meccano and several Northern Ireland companies have funded the project.
Professor Whitaker pointed out: "You are investing in the future of society. If you leave education, do not train young people, and do not discover their talents, we will not build this bridge. Civil engineering has shaped civilization, and we are surrounded by Society."
Meccano is a model building system invented by Frank Hornby in 1898. These toys consist of a series of metal plates and wheels that are secured with nuts and bolts. (willow)
