At the start of engineers week we watched a documentary about engineers called Dream Big. It was mostly about how engineers help our society, and how life would be more difficult without them. On Wednesday we studied about what properties a bridge needs to be stable and weather resistant. After that we built bridges using only straws, rubber bands and tape. The winner had to build the most secure bridge with the fewest materials. Some groups decided to use the least amount of materials but had a very weak bridge and some groups decided to use a lot of materials and had a very strong bridges. We really enjoyed the week!
