• How many different kinds of bridge do you know?

• Are some shapes stronger than others?

Challenge:

  • Build different models of bridges.
  • Test their different models to see which can hold the most weight and why.
  • Record and share their results.

Does it matter where you put the weights?

Take a picture of your bridge and make notes about the weight it held and how you might make it stronger and more stable. Tag us on Twitter @KentMedwaySTEM or send your bridge to askanambassador@canterbury.ac.uk for feedback!
