Sixth graders across the district will become civil engineers in the coming weeks. In preparation, students spent a day visiting and sketching/labeling various types of bridges in Clinton, Hinckley, Skowhegan, Norridgewock, Anson, and New Portland. They will use their knowledge about bridge design principles as they design and construct their own bridges, using toothpicks and wood glue. Their bridges will then be tested to see how much weight each is able to hold.
