In Straws We Truss

Topic: In Straws We Truss day 2
Time Duration: 2 hours and 30 minutes
Grades: K-7th

Today the students built truss structures with straws and pins. The goal of the activity was to have them build a structure as high and strong as possible with 50 straws. The structures were then tested by adding weight to the top of the structure until it failed. The students were then asked what caused the failure.
