STEAM Unit: Building Better Bridges

STEAM Unit: Building Better Bridges
STEAM STEAM Unit Plans
Description

This activity builds on the previous fun and learning of ‘Building Bridges’ and challenges students to think about how engineers choose materials based on the forces acting on bridges. 
After watching a presentation on how forces affect material choices, pairs of students will be presented with a set of materials out of which they will make bridges. Aspects of the Science curriculum will be covered in how they observe, predict and test their bridges using the attached worksheets.

 While many of the concepts may be challenging for students in lower primary, it may be a fun activity to extend those students who enjoyed ‘Building Bridges’.
