Students in Intro to Engineering designed and built bridges out of uncooked noodles. They were responsible for determining the scope of work, completing a cost estimate, and drafting in AutoCAD before building their bridges and presenting them to the class. Part of their presentations involved placing weights on their bridges to see how much they could hold. The strongest bridge easily supported 4800 grams.
This was the second set of bridges built by the class. See their trial run.
