Bridge Building - THE TESTING

After two days of designing and construction, this afternoon saw the ultimate challenge for our budding engineers. Would their bridge span the 1metre gap? Would their bridge support the weight of a large toy VW Beetle? Would the car be able to travel smoothly over the bridge? Did it look aesthetically pleasing? And finally, what was its breaking point? 
In front of a packed hall these tests took place with a variety of outcomes!

The outcome was that every group was successful in one way or another. Ultimately, teamwork was vital and was apparent throughout this mini project.
