The objective of this project was to build a bridge using nothing but school glue and toothpicks. Our teacher have us credit for just simply building a bridge but gave us extra points for every pound it held with the maximum being 30 pounds. 

Step 1:

First thing you would have to do is figure out which bridge design you want to go with for the main part. I decided to go with the Warren (with verticals) design but you should choose one that would be easiest for you or the one you think would hold up the best. I used this paper as reference of the different types of bridges I could build. The one I chose to build is in the third row third column.
