Design Technology


We built and tested bridges using A4 card. We added weights until the bridge failed. We looked  at arches, troughs and corrugations.

Truss Bridges

These bridges meant we could use some of the skills and knowledge we gained from testing the card bridges. 

Some of these bridges failed - due to poor materials (sticky tape that was not sticky enough!) but we did n ot give up. We rebuilt/repaired them and showed we could adapt our designs.
