Intended Learning Outcomes:
After the interview, the partners will progress through the steps of the handout. They'll read the "Bridge Basics" article and do some further online research.
Once they have background information, they will join another partnership (to make a group of 4) to develop a plan to build a 1-2 foot long bridge out of toothpicks and glue.
Groups will work together to construct a bridge. The next day (after the glue has dried) a variety of objects will be placed on the bridge to test their strength. The group whose bridge holds the most weight without breaking will win a prize.
