The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) created a list of Seven Wonders of the Modern World:

  3. Empire State Building
  4. Golden Gate Bridge
  5. Itaipu Dam

Pick any three items from the list.  Explain in a sentence or two why each should or should not be on the list.

SUPPLEMENTAL QUESTION: Only do the supplement below if you are one of the three students who have two engineering classes. Otherwise, do not proceed.

Add three more “wonders” to the ASCE list to round out the “TOP TEN Wonders of the Modern World.”  For each of the three you added, explain in a sentence or two why it should be added.
