Bridge Building Challenge

After researching different bridge types, Y3 children have worked in groups to design a bridge, which will hold the greatest load, using 1 sheet of A4 paper, 5 paper clips, a ruler and scissors. They produced many different designs from twisting, folding and supporting the structures and had lots of fun testing their ideas. A bridge shaped like a boat, folded up at the sides held a staggering 170g.
