Are you looking for another engaging STEM activity? A Billy Goat's Best Bridge will keep your apprentice engineers engaged for a long time!
In this activity, students will use what they know about opposing forces and strong structures to build the best type of bridge that will hold the most weight. Students can explore three bridge types: beam, arch and truss.
This STEM activity is connected to a favorite tale: The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The Billy Goats Gruff and all of their friends want to get over the bridge to the green meadows. The mean troll destroyed the bridge. Now the biggest billy goat must make a new bridge that will support him and all his billy goat friends!
Included in this pack are all the things you need for a successful STEM activity in your classroom or it is perfect for science fair or STEM night. Here's what is included:
-Teacher directions including background information on bridges, materials, procedure and science focus.
- Bridge Design Posters
-STEM Night or Science Fair Logistics Information
-Sample Bridge pictures
-Problem and Procedure Posters
