Perhaps you recall this post about bridges and the MCAS test.
Here’s the update. My daughter’s bridge is pictured at right. And there were no bridge questions on the 6th grade MCAS. (I guess they could be coming in a later year.)
Her bridge held 86 lbs.

It's a nice bridge, but why don't I see any traffic backed up on both sides?
It is a nice bridge, perhaps she could make it a bit bigger so that it may connect to both Somerset and Fall River!
You might be on to something there.
I wonder where I can make the proper inquiries...
Very nice. I'm impressed.
Great bridge. Did she make this in shop? I loved shop. I loved drafting class, too. I got all As.
I hope they still have shop and drafting classes in school!
I think the class was called "home tech," and for one half of the year it was typing. I think she preferred the bridge building, although there were injuries and I know she was a little wary of the x-acto tools. The typing teacher was very old school, and K can't be told to sit up straight for an hour and a half. She can't sit still for an hour and a half, much less sit straight.
