P-TECH 9th-Grade Challenge at ITC on January 27, 2017

The 9th-grade P-TECH students competed in a “Gumdrop Bridge Building Challenge.” Representatives from Ephesus Lighting were there for support and judging. Each team of students was given toothpicks and a box of gumdrops. Teams worked in groups to design and build a bridge that required it to span a distance of 8 inches between two tables. Each bridge was tested to see how much weight it could hold. The winning team’s cup held 435 grams while suspended from the bridge. Thank you Ephesus Lighting!
