Building Bridges: Their task was simple: build a bridge that was strong enough to hold a plastic cup filled with 100 pennies.
Building bridges in STEM class! We have now tried four different types! Three are bundled and one is available separately. All include teacher directions, lab sheets, hints, and photos!
six different types of bridges: beam, arch, suspension, cable-stayed, truss, and cantilever

How to build bridges with kids and students
A SciShow Kids viewer wrote us to ask how bridges are strong enough to carry cars and trucks! Jessi and Squeaks can explain -- with blocks!
'Science practical activity: Leonardo Da Vinci's Bridge - no nails, no ropes, no glue, just wooden sticks! http://www.pinterest.com/lomonegro/da-vinci-rafael-miguel-angel/
Engineering mystery bag challenge idea - Bridge built of popsicle sticks and string
Fairy Tale Science Experiments
What a fun STEM project for kids! Build straw bridges to learn about engineering. Great challenge activity for first grade or second grade.
