2020 - Term One - Spaghetti Bridge Challenge

Words and Photos by Isaac Franklin (and Dad) of "The Crazy Bots"

 

The bridge was 35 grams. I think the more weight lost, and more stability, the more indestructible the bridge is. I felt good when the bridge survived. We added double triangles, I believe the secret is triangles.
I am begging to go to STEM.

We modeled our bridge for Thomas on the old Taramakau Road/Rail bridge near Hokitika. Initially the trusses were designed to be up top, but the train wouldn’t fit so we inverted!
Our emphasis was on light and strong. All glue welds were pretty chunky. What a fun exercise!
