Design & Technology – bridges!

posted in: Mountains | 0

In Mountains class, we have been learning about structures in DT. We looked at three different types of bridges: beam, arch and truss. We started by experimenting with different types of bridge structure to see which was the strongest.


After concluding that triangles were a strong shape structurally, we used balsa wood to start constructing our truss bridges.


We then evaluated their strength by testing different objects on top of them. Look at our completed designs!
