5B STEAM Bridge project

Today’s challenged required us to create our own bridge. To do this we needed to start with researching the purpose and structure of bridges as well as famous architects.

We then used this knowledge to create a design and create our bridges in groups.

We then tested our designs, some were able to hold the weight and others literally crumbled. Please share your comments about your bridge and what you concluded about bridge design. How could you improve your design.


  1. If you use more strings you can make more stronger.Sophias group they made a great bridged the mini car that we tested our bridge. Some bridges were balancing and some were growing strait.❤️❤️❤️❤️

  2. Today we got to design and make our own bridges. I could improve by adding sticks to the bottom so it could be more stable I think our group is good because it could carry a glue and a toy car.

  3. We could improve our design by making it Bigger, Stable, Stronger and Sterdier.
    However, me and my group enjoyed creating a bridge and working together as a team. We used a variety of materials such as Straws, Paper, Coloured paper, Sticks and Sticky tape.
    Whereas, we designed our bridge to be quite complicated but when we noticed, our design was too complicated that it would not work, we had a plan B.
    As a class, we all worked very hard and worked as a team to create a bridge, so well done 5 Blue!
    I’d say that the design me and my group made was quite successful when putting objects on the bridge to test whether it was stable or not, however, if you put a water bottle on it would bend a bit, but when you took it off it would go back to normal, another improvement is that the bridge could be 100 percent stable.

  4. I could improve my bridge by putting lolly pop sticks on top of the paper and put sticks in each corner and put a paper on top of the sticks.

  5. I think I could improve it by putting more layers of ice lolly sticks on top of the bridge we made.I also think we could of improved it by putting some straw underneath the bridge.I think my groups,bridge is brilliant because it could carry a toy car.
