Ms. Allen’s Physics class built a bridge using nothing but toothpicks and gumdrops and their knowledge of forces.  They had to plan their bridges using the engineering design project, construct them, test them, and in some cases re-design them.  They were tested to see which group could build the strongest bridge as well as which group could build the most cost-effective bridge by seeing how much weight the center of the bridge was able to support with prizes for both teams.
