        Design Squad | Truss Bridge

        Have you ever wondered how different bridge designs manage the forces of tension and compression? In this video segment adapted from Design Squad, a team of students competes in a bridge design and construction challenge without the aid of power tools. The team constructs a king post bridge, a type of truss bridge that gets its strength from ultra-rigid triangles that will not easily bend or twist.

        This media asset was adapted from Design Squad: DS Unplugged.
