Building a bridge

Building a bridge

This is a full lesson on building a bridge. This can be used in any subject at the end of term for a fun, engineering-themed lesson. Very handy for the start of the year to allow a form group to get to know each other. I supplied newspapers, sellotape and straws for pupils to use. We used weights from the physics department, which can be placed on the bridge or hung off of it using weight hangers.
