Build a Straw Bridge

STEM activities are fun ways to teach kids how things work. This straw bridge activity takes just a few minutes to prep but will keep young engineers learning for hours! 

Materials needed: 

  • tape
  • yarn
  • scissors
  • paper clips
  • straws

Build a bridge that is strong enough to support a cup filled with 100 pennies. Cut the straws to any length, but for an extra challenge have the bridge sit at least one inch off of the table.
