Building bridges

March 1, 2007

Tucker Gabriel, Hannah Thevarajoo, Emma Lee Elmer and Keith Reynolds test how much weight it takes to crush their toothpick bridge while teacher Denise Kendall looks on. The group won first place in an engineering contest at Eudora West Elementary School sponsored by teachers Barbie Hartwell and Kendall. The bridge finally crumbled under 168 pounds of pressure. The school's engineering club will have another contest in April.
