In this lesson, Student's will be shown with brief presentation on the physics that are used when engineers design bridges. Then the students will work in groups to use the new information to design and build their very own bridges. The lesson actively engages students to think creatively so they can building the sturdiest bridges.
In a guided discussion, Adrian College Teacher Education and Biology students discuss various laws of physics included in constructing bridges and understanding the real world problem of limited supplies. Students will then be grouped together to design and build the most cost effective, sturdy bridge compared to their classmates.
