Bridge builders

Geometry-Triangle-Project-1

Benjamin Logan High School students in the Ms. Walterbusch's geometry class recently built bridges out of Popsicle sticks. This project was to help the students understand how engineers use triangles to construct safe, strong, and stable structures. The students were able to understand that the bridges are more sturdy with bases of triangles than cubes. Pictured are, from left: Bobby Shields, Tyler Burk, Reilly Robson, Katie Honaker and Darrian Bricker.

The BL in the middle of the field was completed with pink paint along with the pink ribbon logo on the edge of the field. Donations were accepted and will be given as a donation toward the Benjamin Logan Relay for life held in the spring.
