Building Bridges Beyond Boundaries
Below: A half curled bridge
Our group is Building a model of a curled bridge. Now, what is a curled bridge? A curled bridge is a movable bridge that curls up to allow water vehicles to pass through and at the same time allows pedestrians to cross pass obstacle/s. It is also an artifact .
Our group thought it was easy to make and thats why we chose to build it. But, oh! What a terrible mistake we made.
First, we cut out 8 pieces from corrugated board and taped it up. Then, we found that the bridge hung too low and the foundation was too weak. After that, we put straws at the sides to support it. We sighed a sigh of sorrow when we found that it could not move as the straws were not very flexible.
After that, relief. We cut a new piece of corrugated board but this time, we only cut halfway. Then, we built two fixed pulleys on either side of the bridge and at last! Success. Decoration was the next thing on our mind. We did manage to decorate it but alas, it broke under its own weight overnight. One in a billion of a bridge, I think!
