Free Standing Structures

This term, for Design Technology focus is 'Freestanding Structures' with a focus on bridges. We will look at a range of different bridges and linked with our science topic 'Everyday Materials', will be investigating the best material to make a bridge. 


We will be visiting the Tamar Bridge to take a closer look at the main structure and we will also visit the new Tamar Bridge Museum. 


We will use a range of materials to create our own bridges, and we will test the strength by placing objects on them. Who will create the strongest bridge?
