Bamboo Bridges

For my first Action Project in Urban Planning (Math and Science) I designed a bridge with HM and GL.  This project was difficult because I’m (obviously) not an engineer, and have never tried to build something like this.  Our goal was to hold 15 pounds, which we did way better than.  We used bamboo and duct tape to build the bridge, and it took about two days of building.  We went through a great deal of trial and error, but ending up having the best bridge in class!  See the video below of our bridge in action.
