Get a health check by Story Occupational Health Nurse while the kids build a bridge!

Armed only with straws, tape, string and elastic bands, the students formed teams and set to work drawing draft designs before building their final structure.  The end of the challenge saw each of the teams bring their completed bridges to the front of the class for the ‘big test’. Spanning a 50cm gap, their bridges had to hold the weight of a tin of food.
