6th Grade Bridge Breaking Competition

6th graders from The Riverside School, Oak Clarke, Caleb Harrison, Ruby Rolfe, and Riley Miller, all watch intently as their Science teacher, Joel Gilbert, increases the pressure on the jack to see how much weight the bridge that Oak built can hold before it is crushed.  Bridge Breaking is an annual event at the school. The 6th grade class works for weeks designing and building bridges that are then judged by area engineers. The final test for the students is to see which one can withstand the most weight before it splinters to pieces. Caleb Harrison and Colter Thibeadeau took overall first place with Riley Miller a close second.
