Science in Your Inbox: Da Vinci’s Bridge

Posted Jan 17, 2021 | Category: Uncategorized

In the experiment “Da Vinci’s Bridge,” you will explore the mechanical engineering required to build a bridge with no mechanical fasteners or adhesives based on one of Leonardo da Vinci’s designs. You will be weaving the sticks together so that the tension between the sticks keeps the bridge together and lifts it off the ground.

Download the experiment here.
