STEM (Engineering)

This week Room 1 has being doing some more engineering. The challenge is to make a free standing bridge that can withhold a heavy weight. They are only allowed to use 200 popsicle sticks and either sellotape or glue. It is a very testing challenge where the children have to use their prior knowledge on what they already know about bridges, then answer the questions and test them out. What design are you going to use? How many sticks will you need to build it? Here is some photos of the kids beginning their bridges:
