Build a Bridge Contest
Your challenge will be to use the following supplies to create a bridge that can hold as much weight as possible - Use your supplies wisely as you won't be given any other materials once the competition has begun!
2 tooth picks
6 pieces of uncooked spaghetti
2 sheets of printer paper
4 note cards
3 paper clips
9 inches of painters tape
2 rubber bands
1 Ruler - Only for measuring purposes
*** You will have twenty minutes to build your bridge and have it set up to be tested***
Your bridge must cover an 8 inch open area (from desk edge to desk edge)
(The weight being put on the bridge will be different amounts/types of coins)
The group that has the bridge that holds the most weight will win a prize!!!!
You don't want your bridge to end up like the "Construction Fail" below, so make sure you use your planning time wisely today!
