Bridge Testing

For inquiry this term we have been focusing on bridges and structures. For the past couple of weeks we have been building and planing our spaghetti bridge, in our group. For this we had two plan what we were going to build on a paper, before we actually started building. We deiced to do a beam bridge, because it's simple and sounded easy two build. Today was our presenting day, were we had to showcase our bridge to everyone. Our bridge ended up holding more than 2 bricks, but dropped on the third brick. This was a fun, because we got to build our own bridge making spaghetti, tape and rubber bands.
