Over the past couple of days, the 3Js have been busy building bridges, testing the strength of each design, and discussing what they learned. Student teams each built a beam bridge and a truss bridge, then created a screen cast explaining what each looks like, how they made it, and which one they think will be stronger. At the end of their project, teams broke their bridges to test their designs.
Our first video shows the construction process and screen cast from the students’ perspective:
