On Friday on July 11, 2014, the elementary students of Excelsius Academy participated in a fun, engaging science activity called the “Straw Bridge Activity”. In this activity, the goal was to build stable bridges using only 30 straws. The students learned how to cut straws and tape them together in ways that would provide a strong base for their bridges. The straw bridge activity helped these students utilize their science and mathematics skills. It also provided them with the basic foundation of becoming possible architects or engineers in the future!
