Evergreen Heights Education Centre students in Mr. McMurray’s Grade 4/5 class recently explored the forces of tension and compression when building bridges.
Students were tasked to use the technological problem-solving skills to design, build, and test a frame structure (e.g., a bridge, a tower) that would withstand the application of an external force. Blake and Avery designed a bridge that was so strong it was able to hold up Mr. McMurray’s truck!
Way to go, students!
