Bridge Building Contest 11.20.11 at The Larkin's House

Jim and Julie Larkin hosted a standing-room only crowd for the over one dozen bridges that each Webelos I boy constructed with glue and 100 or less Popsicle sticks.  The results were truly amazing and our boys (and their parents, too!) learned about engineering principles, IMPACT, and the pros and cons of waiting to the last minute to help their boys complete the project.  Chris Larkin's bridge, weighing less than a pound, held up under 107.5 lbs - the entire stack of available weights!  The gala event included pizza, photos, and lots of laughs - thank you, Larkins for hosting, and Mr. McDanolds and Mr. Wildasin for leading our Web I's!

We had a phenomenal day of "show and tell" about cranes and the (grade school) boys got a chance to operate the boom - thanks to Joe Nye and his co-worker, Ray, for hosting this once-in-a-lifetime tour!
