Year 1 DT – Stable Structures and Rigid Bridges

For the last two weeks, Year 1 have been investigating different types of bridges and having a go at creating bridges and structures that are stable as well as rigid shapes.

We discussed the idea of using pillars to support the middle parts of the bridge. We also looked at how a square isn’t as rigid as a triangle when under pressure!

Some of our bridges were more stable than others!
