This engineering activity gets youngsters working together to design and construct a bridge. Each bridge is tested in front of the class to discover how much weight it can hold before showing any change in form. The lesson plan does not provide background information about types of bridges or factors that affect bridge strength; it would be beneficial to do some instruction on these vital concepts prior to assigning the activity.
