Building Bridges STEM Activity
Some engineers in the transportation industry design huge structures like bridges, airports, and bus depots. It is their job to make sure these structures can safely support the weight of people or vehicles on or inside them.

In this engineering activity, you will design and build bridges out of single sheets of paper and test how much weight they can hold.  You might wonder, how does the shape of a bridge affect its strength? Let’s explore and find out with this transportation STEM activity!
