Third Grade Engineers Bridges Out Of Drinking Straws

First they draw up their proposed design.  When their design is approved, then they get their materials - 10 straws and scotch tape.

The task is to build a bridge that can support the most weight.  Their design has to hold a Dixie Cup that will eventually be filled with pennies.  The goal is to hold the most pennies!
