New Popsicle Stick Suspension Bridge

Here is a sneak peak at one of my newest creations: a model suspension bridge made from popsicle sticks and parachute cord. This bridge was created as part of a custom project I was contracted to design.

However, I found a way to construct one with a simple method and this is the result.

Popsicle Bridge Howe Truss Kit

This is a great opportunity to learn principles of engineering and physics while having lots of fun. This popsicle bridge kit allows you to construct a Howe Truss Bridge which really works. Not only does this bridge work, but it can hold some serious weight. Put a load of 100 pounds on it, no problems. And if you spread the load out along the entire span, this little bridge can hold 140+ pounds of force.
