The Incredible Hulk Award

In Mrs. Sarah Hardin’s engineering class (Midlothian High School), students build structures from graham crackers.  One test students can elect to have their creations compete in is the weight-bearing contest. The structure that supports the most weight wins The Incredible Hulk Award. Last year’s winner supported 1,200 pounds!

Here are a series of pictures of one dwelling from beginning to its demise*.

* In the weight-bearing mechanism, this structure broke on one corner – contest over. But, when the weights were removed  one of its creators jumped on the green dwelling – contest really over.
