Sixth Grade students, Ian Goldberg, Evan 

Kurash and Nixon Malik competed in the Vermont Technical College's Popsicle Stick Bridge Building Competition. The only materials allowed in this competition are Popsicle sticks, Elmer's Glue, toothpicks and dental floss.




 Mr Fisher helped us a lot with lessons on structure and stability.



Finally putting the deck on!



 After months of designing and construction, we went to the competition to see our bridge "fail" at 205 lbs of pressure.  This was a good performance, and earned us second place in the middle school division.  It also gave us lots of great ideas on how to make our design even better next year.
Congratulations Evan, Ian and Nixon!  Great job!




Here is a video of it breaking.
