Building Pasta Bridges to Understand Structural Engineering

I will be creating a virtual expedition throughout the unit with a focus of learning various fields of engineering and implementing STEM applications in the classroom. Students will be traveling to Medieval Times and focusing on the creation of draw bridges used in castles from that time period. Each group of students will have to create a bridge made of only various types of pasta and tape. I will be focusing on addressing number and operations, measurement, geometry, and data analysis math goals.
