Year 2 have been continuing to explore structures, by making bridges with different materials and with different shapes. We have explored making paper channel bridges, and found out that the more layers of paper the more weight the bridge can hold.

We have also used pipe cleaners and geostrips, and discovered that a simple rectangular bridge can be stabilised by adding struts. We noticed that the most rigid bridges were the ones where we used diagonal struts, making triangles.
