Midwest Products Bridge Building Class Packs

These convenient class packs contain enough materials for 24 students to build and test a wooden bridge. Bridge building is a popular competitive activity in middle and high school classrooms that challenges students to design and construct a wooden bridge, calculate its efficiency, then select the best design. (Some engage in destruction testing afterwards!)

This activity supports a variety of curricula, including geometry, physics, technology education, math, and general science. In addition to classroom competition, there are numerous state and nationwide bridge building competitions held annually that offer recognition and awards.
