Superhero Harvest Party
After the costume fun, we got to see the High Schoolers and their bridge building projects for Art class. Each kid built a bridge, getting some assistance from Lukas, our mechanical engineer. Today was the day to test them and see how much weight they would withhold. We initially started the weight with just gravel, but quickly changed to rocks and then actual weights. Once we got to over 140lbs of weights, we started adding people, and were all amazed at how strong the bridge's were. We didn't fully test them all, but Emma Dooley's withstood Jordan supporting himself on the bridge with all his weight, which was really impressive. Others were sat on and still held up. We might have a number of mechanical engineers in the future.
