Engineering is Elementary

Creating a Bridge and Testing it: 5″ tall, spanning 15″, a barge has to be able to go underneath and a car has to be able to go over it.

Here you see they decided to use 4 columns made of index card and a platform held by an X frame of popsickle sticks.


The car was able to go across the center platform of paper and index cards, the barge had enough room underneath, and the bridge could hold at least 300g of weight.


The sides of the platform did cave in… stay tuned to see what they do next time!
