#20351 Engineering Principles - Balsa Wood Model Bridges (Run time min.) DVD $69.95

This video is an informative and exciting look at the basics of engineering. One of the best ways to learn how something works is to examine it when it didn't work and discuss why it failed. This idea is demonstrated by a secondary school class that builds models of bridges from balsa wood. The forces that work against real structures, such as live loads, people and cars, dead loads, the weight of the structure itself, and stress from weather, are simulated in the classroom. They learn many different stresses that structures endure and how to control those stresses with structural design. An examination of various bridge structures, like a beam bridge, an arch bridge, and a tension bridge, illustrates which designs are most appropriate for specific stresses. The best model bridges are determined when they are tested for their strength against the forces. A must for those interested in design and engineering. One 19-minute video. A Shopware Production.

By using spaghetti to construct a model bridge, students can examine the effects of these forces individually and combined. This video begins with a history of spaghetti bridge building contests and lists the categories of competition. After outlining the standard rules of construction, it then follows the building of various bridges and their performance in competition. Included are highlights of the international spaghetti bridge building contest at Okanagan College in British Columbia, Canada. An interesting and creative way to learn about bridge building.
