Congratulations to Moorea Santulli and Annabel Raffin, two 7th grade students at Amity Middle School in Bethany who broke the school’s record for the most weight held by a model bridge. After learning about the engineering concepts behind bridges, students in Technology & Engineering Education Program at Amity Middle School in Bethany design, construct, and test model bridges each year. Student bridges are constructed with balsa wood, span 20 inches, and weigh between 50 and 150 grams. Moorea’s and Annabel’s record breaking bridge weighed 148 grams (approximately the weight of two extra large eggs) and held 150 pounds!
