The Bridge Test

The seventh grade students tested their toothpick bridges today.  A bucket was hooked to each bridge from below, and water was slowly added to increase the weight supported.  The students designed and built their bridges from toothpicks, string, and glue that had assigned costs. The goal of the project was to support the most weight with the lowest construction cost.  This year, the winning bridge had a construction cost of "$9200.00" per pound.  It supported 5 pounds of water!

Bridge Project

The Seventh and Eighth Grade class is working on their bridge math project.  Students build bridges out of toothpicks that each cost "1000 "dollars" and are tallied into the total cost of construction.  The finished bridges will be tested with a bucket of sand.  Sand is added to the bucket until the bridge fails.  The students calculate what it costs to hold one pound.  Mr. Frost reports that the average bridge costs 250 thousand "dollars".
