How successful were you? At each stage when the design was tested and evaluated what did you learn? How helpful was this evaluation process to your learning? Did you learn something even if you didn’t complete the contest? What other lessons in life are like this? What would you do differently next time?

Downloadable programme from the web and runs without internet access.

Children attempt the challenge in 2’s or 3’s. Discuss clear need for ‘stickability’ at regular points in the activity.

What learning from this week will help us to tackle this problem?

Look at images of some of Brunel’s bridges – the Clifton Suspension Bridge and the Royal Albert Bridge (re: Brunel Information PowerPoint ). What patterns can you see in the construction? What materials have been used? Ask for each group to record a question on a post-it note re: if they could ask the photo a question what would it be?

Are you able to design a bridge using engineering principles and a bridge building design package?
