Bridge Building

STEM

Materials and Preparation

 

 

 

-up to 3 sheets of paper (8.5 x 11 inches)

-objects to act as "weight" when testing your bridge

-ruler or tape measure

Rules

 

 

The rules for this event are simple. You may only the paper (up to three sheets) to contruct a "bridge" that can cross a 12 inch gap. For example, if you make 2 stacks of books and position them 12 inches apart, the bridge should be able to go from one to the other.  It should not only hold itself up, but also some additional weight. 

Judging

 

The total amount of weight being held up by your design is the primary factor in the judging.

 

This does not need to look like a traditional bridge, it just needs to hold up weight. It can hold up books, cans of food, coins, a juice box, or any other thing you have around the house.
