Regents physics students were recently assigned the challenge of constructing a balsa wood bridge for a friendly competition to see who could produce the most efficient bridge. A set of specifications was provided that constrained the project to no more than 30 grams total mass, and to specific minimums and maximums on all dimensions.
Within those constraints, students were encouraged to be creative with design and use of trusses. The bridges this year were of particularly high quality, showing students really threw themselves into the spirit of the project. The efficiency of each bridge was determined by destructive loading: gradually adding sand to a bucket suspended under the bridge until catastrophic failure occurred. The mass required to break the bridge was then divided by the mass of the bridge itself to produce an efficiency number for bridge comparison.
