When the Brooklyn Bridge was built in 1893, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. Built by John, Washington and Emily Warren Roebling, it was a feet of engineering that has connected millions of people.

We’re working on our own bridge, for educators to connect students around the world. Partnering with MIT Center for Future Civic Media and Digital Democracy, Project Roebling – named for the builders of the Brooklyn Bridge – is the base for Project Lumiere, our video-based digital penpal program to connect youth internationally.
