Bridges by Scott Weeks, Civl Engineer, Florida Engineering Society (Forest Chapter)

January 6, 2024

January Science Saturday was about “Bridges”. The presentation was led by civil engineer Scott Weeks. Students designed bridges, first using paper and tissues boxes and then with straws and string. In designing their bridges, students had to follow a set of design rules. They then tested the bridges by seeing how many pennies each bridge could support. The results of their tests were used to improve their bridges.
