Bridge Construction Project

Since the first week of school, the 7th and 8th graders watched an engineering video on bridge construction and learned how and why bridges fail. They were tasked with constructing their own bridges using multiple sticks, the goal was to bring out creativity by ensuring the bridges they construct can hold workbooks, and other materials with weight. Each students constructed their own bridges from what they learned, tested the bridges and learned more on how real life bridges fail and with self assessment, learn how to avoid bridges from failing.
