February 2017 – Newspaper Construction

Can you build a bridge out of newspaper?   Our students were challenged to design a bridge using only newspaper and tape and then test their creations by seeing how much weight it could hold.  Did it collapse?  That’s OK — just back to the drawing board to make improvements and try new ideas.  By working together as a team, they discovered that bridges (like teams) are strongest when all the parts work together and support each other.
