Bridge Building Competition

Bridge Building Competition

Fourth grade TAG students from Liberty recently had the opportunity to compete against over 30 teams from around the state of Iowa in the "Ready, Set, Build Challenge" hosted by the Science Center of Iowa in Des Moines. During class, students learned about bridge building and civil engineering concepts. At the event, students worked in teams to construct a prototype bridge using only provided materials, while considering strength, style, and structure. At the end of the day, testing was done to see how much weight each bridge could withstand. Congratulations to all of the team who participated!
