Building bridges

Another one of the "Build a Bridge to a Safer Egg" challenges was to construct a sturdy bridge using Popsicle sticks and white glue. 
On Friday, each bridge was tested to see how much weight it could support.
This particular bridge was the champion.
It successfully held all the weights and was inducted into the Inside Out Hall of Fame.
Not surprisingly, none of the other bridges performed as well.
Here's James' bridge.
Before it was tested, James and his team did an oral presentation...
and then it was time for weight testing!   
As more...
and more weight was piled on...
the bridge began to creak and crack.
It collapsed at seventy five pounds.
No Hall of Fame, but James was happy that he got to keep one of the pieces!
