Bridge to Communication

Ryan, Willow, and Romer — 11th Grade students — were chosen to lead an activity for Grades 9-11 wherein groups were challenged to construct a free standing bridge out of only 8 newspapers and masking tape. It needed to hold a half-full Brita pitcher for 10 seconds and be tall enough for a bowl to pass under it. To add additional challenge, they had 10 minutes to plan but needed to build the bridge in 10 minutes without talking at all.

Every group was a success. You can also see that one group went significantly above and beyond and constructed a newspaper and tape bridge able to hold Sylvie-Grace for 10 seconds!
