Bridging the gap - collaboration and innovation in MYP design

The first MYP design challenge of the year gives students the opportunity to re-engage with design thinking skills, collaborative strategies, and the creative process. Last week, we began to bridge the gap between this year and the last by literally building bridges. Student groups designed and constructed popsicle stick bridges to withstand as much weight as possible, and early results from load testing look very promising! Ask your child about their bridge and the strategies they employed to construct them.
