Designing, Constructing, and Testing a Bridge

In this class students learn from a professional engineer to design and build a truss bridge using file folder cardboard as construction material. The bridges are built by teams of students according to a specific set of guidelines. A contest is then held to determine which bridge has the best design and supports the largest load.
