Durant 6th graders compete in 'Battle of the Bridges'
Durant sixth grade students participated in the Battle of the Bridges 13th annual competition in Davenport March 6 at the Putnam Museum. Four TAG students were challenged to build a bridge in three hours that could withstand a substantial amount of weight. With bridge materials provided such as super glue, string, wire and craft sticks, students built their bridges to match the dimension requirements. Afterward, each bridge was weighed and tested for how much weight it could hold before being destroyed. Pictured above, from left, are Lillian Cheney, Royce Richman and Clay Dierickx.
