Year 7 bridge building
This term, Year 7 has been involved in a number of exciting activities in Tech. These have included Wood Tech, Computer Tech and Bridge Building. Our class, 7 Tech A, has been participating in Bridge Building with Mrs Lawrence. We have had a wonderful time learning about the different types of bridges and their structures. Our knowledge has now greatly increased regarding the constructions that are part of everyday lives.
Because of this project, we are now capable of identifying different bridges and understanding the effort and engineering behind them.
We have all now completed our folios and have begun to create our own bridges using spaghetti and hot glue. Tabi and I have decided to use a truss formation with our bridge, because of its broad use of triangles and strength.
This term we have really enjoyed learning and researching about popular bridges, and what is added to increase their durability.
