Engineers started the 3D design of their bridge using Makers Empire and either Shaper or Blocker. On Friday, engineers will be using physical materials that they have requested to create their final bridge.
Using PBS Building Big: The Bridge Challenge and Seesaw, engineers were assigned a partner and a scenario to create a bridge design.
Using Seesaw, engineers were assigned research missions to learn more about bridges through video and print. Engineers then shared what they learned on Seesaw.
3D printed gingerbread people with kilogram weights were used to test how much the bridge could hold before collapsing. Designers captured their testing using their iPads and Seesaw.
