Building bridges and welcoming new members


We welcomed several new members to our team tonight.

We gave driving lessons…

And we also had a design challenge, to build spaghetti bridges to span 30cm.

Many groups used triangles to make their bridges stable.IMG_8672.JPG

Some groups had so much pasta that they could afford to snack while they worked.IMG_8751.JPG

We tested the bridges to destruction! Some held over 3kg! “Our bridge could hold a newborn baby!”

Many thanks to the K-Bots who led activities, and to those who helped clean up! Please bring forms back ASAP so we can start using tools, and start planning for our trip Oct 3/4 to New York State.
