During engineers week we took part in engineering challenges.
First we had to make a structure that could stand using marshmallows and raw spaghetti.
When we were able to do this we then discussed how we could make a taller structure. In groups we then had to make the tallest structure that we could.
Then we measured the structures to see which group made the tallest one.
We also did the paper bridge challenge.
We had to make the strongest bridge that we could using 2 books and a sheet of A4 paper.
We tested the strength of each bridge using coins.
