Engineering Challenge for the 6 White Knights Team!

The students in Mrs. Greelis’ E Block were faced with an engineering challenge!  They were tasked with making a bridge for the Gingerbread Man to escape the dangers of the river and the Big, Bad Wolf!  The students used one index card and two books standing upright.  The index card could only touch the books one half inch on each side. The cards could not be cut or have anything added to them.  The students quickly discovered that if they folded the cards, they would become stronger.  The first place group of Lily Boccelli, Katie Chaple and Elizabeth Goodard made a bridge that held 170 grams.  We had a tie for second place by Matt McGowan and Josh Mendes, and Jack Desmarais and Matt Cormier with 130 grams each.  Nice work!
