Toothpick Bridge Design

Eighth graders are introduced to what makes a strong, sound structure. They explore about the truss structure, the importance of the strength of the triangle and the distribution of forces along the truss. Students work in teams to create an original bridge design. They build the bridge out of toothpicks and glue for their design.
