Project Lead The Way is a project-based class that encourages students to explore engineering from the vantage point of being an engineer. Recently the POE class was given the challenge of designing and building bridges out of balsa wood. We then used weights to test their weight capacity. I am very proud of all of the students but a special shout-out goes to the winning team of Derrick Mackall-Griffin and Noah Oyelade! The pictures above are the before and after pictures of their bridges. Can you guess which one was the winning design that held over 10 lbs?

I am looking forward to the great things these young engineers will do in the future. Please enjoy these videos of two of the bridge tests.
