Last updated October 7, 2020 | Arizona State University

Project Brief

A structural, and aesthetically pleasing bridge with limited size and materials

Tools & Materials

  • 3/16 wooden dowel
  • Tracing paper
  • Superglue
  • Wood glue
Investigating Structure
While partly just for fun, this begun with everyone finding different strength characteristics with gummy bears and toothpicks
Building Structure
I built the structure by fastening the joints with superglue, then with wood glue for strength
Decorating Structure
I added the tracing paper with super glue last to prevent it from being damaged during the construction process
