Y6 DW Bridge Building Challenge

posted 23 May 2016, 08:58 by D Wright
Our class were given a budget of £100 and a price list of: Paper- £10.00 per sheet, Tape - £5.00 per 10 cm strip and Paper-clips - £3,00 each. 
Working in groups, Y6DW had to plan what to purchase and construct a bridge which could span a 40 centimetre gap. The bridge needed to hold the weight of the provided vehicle for a period of ten seconds. 
It was a great way to practice our measuring, addition, subtraction and estimating skills.
