Construction Technologies: Construct the Strongest Bridge

Published on

Abstract

In this activity, students will work in pairs to create three simple types of bridges. They will observe quantitatively how the bridges work under load and why engineers use different types of bridges for different places. They also will get the idea of the parts needed to build a bridge, and what they are for.
