Arches


Do you want to know how to build a standing arch with no glue or tape? Students will learn how to build self- standing arches so they can support not only the arch's weight but additional weight on top.
Students will  design and plan for the building of an arch, they will be given materials for it, and once they feel their arch is strong enough to stand its own weight, we will test the properties of it by placing weights on top of the arches and observe how much weight a small arch can support if the design is done correctly.
