K’nex 2.0

During this session, the 6th graders reviewed their bridge vocabulary and tested two truss bridges made out of K’nex, which were a Baltimore and a Howe bridge, for breakage or buckling. In the end, they discovered that the Howe bridge was the best one to hold the most weight. As a result of the kids finding the best truss bridge, they have more knowledge going into their engineering course!
