A suspension bridge is one of the oldest of engineering forms. Suspension bridges were constructed by primitive peoples using vines for cables and mounting the roadway directly on the cables. This project puts a new "spin" on the typical suspension bridge challenge. The students only have one hour to solve the engineering problem of building a suspension bridge with limited materials and time that will hold 50 pounds. The objectives of this assignment include understanding teamwork and collaboration while using the engineering design process to simulate the activity of a structural engineer.
