Weekly Build Challenge 4/21 – Bridge Strength Challenge
Using either a couple of thick books or chairs, create a bridge out of Legos, blocks or other craft supplies to span the gap. Here is the challenge:
- The bridge must be wide enough for a small car or toy to cross
- How much weight can the bridge hold? Use coins, blocks or other heavy objects on the middle of the bridge to see how much it can hold before it collapses. If you have a scale, measure the amount and see if you can improve it.
