HPE 2nd Graders are Building Bridges


The second graders at High Plain wrapped up the Engineering Unit: Building Bridges with a successful bridge building event. Working with a partner, second graders worked through the Engineering Design Process. They planned, created, tested, and improved a bridge with a 15” span. The bridge needed to support the weight of 50 pennies, allow a 5” wide barge to pass through, and carry toy car traffic in both directions. Virtually all bridges were a success after the two hour event.
