Bridging It Together~DC~

Our first action project in Urban Redux was to build a bridge. My group decided to use bamboo for it’s well known strength. First we calculated the dimensions of the joints and members. With the proper calculations completed we began to construct the bridge. We used guerrilla glue and duct tape to piece together our bridge. Once it was completed we tested the durability of our bridge with books. t held 12 books weighing 23 pounds. We learned about Newton’s laws, bridge parts, stability and equations used to find out if the bridge will be stable enough.I’m proud of the work we individually and as a group. I feel like everyone had a role and did a great job at it. Below is the video from our test run. Enjoy 🙂
