Let’s Build Engineering Extravaganza

Building Sugar Arch Bridges

 

Challenge:  Build an Arch with Sugar Cubes.  Test it with weight.

Questions to ask:

  • Why might early Needham residents have built arch bridges instead of other types of bridges?

  • Ask how stone arch bridges were constructed.

  • Why is the keystone so important?
