TRIP TRAP TRIP TRAP ... WHO'S THAT BUILDING A BRIDGE?

Learning Goal: The grade 5 students are learning about forces acting on structures.     

A bridge can be built in many different ways, however, a bridge must be built to resist the forces acting on it (nature's forces, gravity etc.). The students were challenged to build the strongest bridge possible using 40 straws, 1 metre of string, and masking tape. The bridge will then go through two tests; a wind test (stability) and a load test (using weights).
