As the second quarter ends, students are ending the research phase of their projects and are discussing how they plan to share their information.
One sheet of paper was the only material offered to students as they were asked to build a paper bridge spanning an 8 inch gap. Pennies and weights were added to the bridges to test the weight capacity of each bridge. By folding, bending, and altering the paper, Wednesday students built bridges that held up to 1.6 pounds. Not to be outdone, our Monday group had a bridge that held almost a full 2 pounds. Impressive on all accounts.
