A STEM activity where students make corrugated paper and then determine how much weight they can hold by building simple bridges. A diagram and notes are provided on the forces of tension and compression, which are important forces in the engineering of bridges.

A simple graph can be constructed from the results; graph paper is provided. The result table and the graph can be used as a stand-alone assessment or incorporated into an interactive lab notebook.
