Building Artistic Bridges

This week Year 6 have been looking at different types of bridges, their suitability for different locations, the materials used and their purpose. To extend on this we carried out a mini investigation where we made our own bridge and tested the strength of it.  We were given art straws, cardboard, masking tape and paper. The objective was to make a  bridge in 15  minutes using the given resources. The bridge had to measure 60 cm and go across two desks. We used different size weights to measure the strength. It was fun and exciting working as a team. Congratulations to Hamza’s team…..
