For our first action project in our STEM class Urban Planning, we had to build a bridge and see how much weight it could hold. The purpose of this project was looking at how we could have the maximum support with the minimum materials.
We built our bridge out of bamboo and binded it together with a variety of items such as duct tape, staples, super glue and clay. This process was labor intensive and involved a lot of hard work to make it all come together, but rewarding, even though we really wanted our bridge to be a lot stronger.
Below is the video of our bridge, it crashes after 18 pounds of weight.
