This week P7 were joined (virtually) by the engineering department from Edinburgh College. They were telling us all about engineering and about bridges.

At the end, they set us a simple task – to create a freestanding bridge which stretched 40cm and that could hold as much weight as possible.

Here is the building stage…

And below you can see our testing stage… Some bridges made it – and some didn’t!

A huge thanks to Edinburgh College for joining us and for providing all of the instructions, materials and advice.
