Bridge Building

Bridge Building
Shannon Middle School sends teams of 7th and 8th graders to participate in the MDOT Bridge Competition held in Jackson. 
Students are required to build a bridge out of balsa wood, prepare a PowerPoint presentation and a portfolio to qualify for the competition. 
Students gain experience in meeting deadlines, critical thinking, applying engineering concepts, and teamwork. Meetings are after school. 
To qualify for the team, students must be in the 7th or 8th grade and maintain a "B" average in math and science with no discipline referrals.
