Numeracy Spaghetti Bridge Challenge

Foundation Numeracy students recently showcased their  spaghetti bridge challenge to college leadership to demonstrate their understanding of a range of Numeracy outcomes.  As students worked in groups to design, develop and build their bridges the project encouraged students to experiment with weight, tension, design and aesthetics. With Numeracy teachers Tamara Zarafa & Maryam Sulaiman delivering the project, students were judged on strength and aesthetics. The overall  task required students to work in pairs and construct their bridges using glue and spaghetti only. Bridges were judged under the following guidelines: maximum weight of 100g; maximum height of 400mm & minimum of 200mm & length a minimum of 170mm with a maximum of 250mm. Congratulations to the winners: Mitchell Brown & Ethan Attard for aesthetics & Caleb Rayment & Dylan Anastasiou for strength. A solid effort put in by all, well done!
