Bridge Building

Bridge Test

Our design...

We used 4 bars of chocolate (produced by a world recognised local company!), melted the sides, molded to create box girder bridges.

What happened?

We kept the chocolate bridge in the fridge for a week.

We tried it by putting the bridge other a gap and then put cans of baked beans (each weighing 410 kg).
It took the weight of 8 cans that means that this bridge made of 100% of chocolate took the weight of 3.28 kg!  
This is not what we expected as normally chocolate breaks under the pressure of our hands. 

Was it sustainable?

We attempted to put the weights on the bridge for a second time.  It collapsed after 7 weights (2.87kg) were place onto it.
