Article 29: Education should develop our talents and abilities.

This week we began our new Design Technology unit where we will be looking at structures and designing a bridge. Today we have investigated the strength of a beam beam and ways of adapting it – adding a supporting arch; folding and creating sides to the beam and changing the flat beam to a beam with folds. Each time we changed the bridge structure, we added weights to see if the structure became stronger.
