Engineering Physics – I use the same textbook in Engineering that I use for Physics 11. It’s really quite a versatile textbook.

Day 90 – Popsicle Bridge

WP_20170127_14_09_33_Pro.jpg

Engineering Physics 12 – Students started working gluing together their first popsicle bridge.  They were given specific plans and instructions on their build and I handed out three different truss designs: Warren, Pratt and Howe.

The idea here is that they will have some practice in clamping and properly assembling a bridge.  The next step after this will be for them to use their knowledge of truss/joint analysis to design and build their own bridge for the TRU bridge contest.
