In this video, watch students in Mr. Hermanson’s class in Ypsilanti, Mich. work through a bridge building project that incorporates all aspects of STEAM. During the project, students sketch out their plans, use a bridge building app on their tablets to help design the structure and form of the bridge, physically construct the bridge using various materials, and finally test its strength. You’ll never guess how much weight one bridge was able to support!
