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.
