Design Technology

Year 6 have been investigating how bridges are constructed and analysing the effectiveness of each design.  In this lesson we explored ways in which trusses are used to strengthen bridges.  We selected to create either a lattice, warren or pratt truss and then carefully measured the amount of weight which it could support.  Some of our truss bridges surprised us! Take a look at our photographs!
