The 7th-8th grade Exploratory Science class spent a month building popsicle stick bridges. These bridges had to be built to specific dimensions and follow certain guidelines. They were allowed to research the different types of bridges and then had to design one of their own to be built. With wood glue and an allowance of 200 popsicle sticks here were the results.The strongest bridge was built by Kennedy Storm, Erik Meitner, and William Brown. It held a total of 225 pounds which was 5 pounds more than Mr. Ballien’s bridge. Great job everyone!

This picture is the strongest bridge group.

Here are pictures of all the bridges and teams
