Description

Overview:
You are part of a team of engineers who have been given the challenge to design a bridge out of popsicle sticks and glue. Bridges must be able to hold at least 20 pounds. The bridge must span at least 14 inches in length. But, it must be longer than 14 inches because when it has been constructed, it will be placed between two desks so it is at least one foot above the floor for a weight-bearing test. In addition to meeting the structural and weight bearing requirements, the bridge will be judged on its aesthetics as well, so be creative! And, you are encouraged to use the fewest number of popsicles possible to achieve your goal.Budget: $20,000Materials:Popsicle Sticks: $200 eachGlue Sticks: $300 eachString: $50/inchYou will present your results to the class using Keynote and iMovie.
