PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This STEAM & STEM project gives a real-life scenario from an urban city where a bridge collapse occurred, following a fire. Students are challenged to test 3 different solid figure columns, triangular prism, rectangular prism, and cylinder, in order to make a recommendation as to which type of supports the new bridge should have.

Diagram:
Students will draw a diagram of their recommended bridge design after testing the 3 supports, and recording their data.

Recommendation Letter:
Students will write a letter to the governor explaining which column they suggest, and providing advice based on what they discovered during testing.

6 Venn-Diagrams:
Students will use their knowledge of solid figures to compare and contrast 3D shapes using double and triple Venn-Diagrams.

Science Passage: Why Are Cylinders Strong?
This passage has 3 levels of difficulty. Students will learn why cylinders are used as columns. A connection to Greek Architecture is included in the more difficult version.
