Investigating the reinforcing properties of triangles

Chatsworth were set a challenge to produce a metre span bridge that would hold a toy car's weight out of just cardboard and paper using the reinforcing properties of triangles.  They have investigated many different types of bridges and drawn their designs using what they now know.  Let's see if they are successful when we test them out next week.
