Day 81 / 103 - Straw Bridge Construction

For the past two weeks my children have been constructing bridges out of straws as our related Science project during our Classical Conversations campus day.   Students were to to use straws, rubber bands, and Play-Doh as struts, straps, and cement.  The goal was to make a bridge that would support weight, and we tested that by piling books on top.

In addition, we discussed the four types of bridges: Beam, Truss, Arch, and Suspension.
