    This activity is designed to introduce students to the history of truss designs and how they relate to bridge construction. The students explore the history of the various designs and applications. They are then tasked with selecting and building their own. Once the designs are constructed, they are tested until they fail by adding weight to each bridge. The students analyze the deficiencies of the bridge and implement engineering principles to create a more efficient design that they will construct for further testing.
