Engineering and Designing Bridges with Innovate Studios

Students had a chance to work on engineering and design principals with the folks from Innovate studios. Using just balsa wood and glue they have to build a bridge that can withstand the most weight. Students have to go through following steps in the process: identify the problem, explore ideas, design, create, try it again, and make it better. This cyclical process teaches them creative problem solving, teamwork and how to work through mistakes. Innovate will return once the bridges are completed and test them out.
