5th Grade Bridge Building Challenge

5th graders were given a limited amount of materials (mostly drinking straws and paperclips) and were asked to construct a bridge that could support weight.  After design and experimentation we tested the bridges to see how much weight they could hold.  Some bridges were able to hold over 1000 grams!  This was a physics design challenge to prepare the class for the Egg Drop Challenge later this year...
