Yesterday Mr. Calvert assigned our first tech project. We had to create a regular, simple, cardboard sandwich beam, and another beam that was more detailed and would be able to hold more weight. I built an I-Beam, which definitely was able to hold more weight then the simple beam. The process took me a while, since I had to glue the cardboard, then wait an hour for the glue to cure, then glue more pieces, and so on. I could have built the I-Beam to be a little bit more strong and steady, but it was good for my first try. Overall, this building a better beam project was a really fun and exciting experience for me.
Below I attached a picture of my I-Beam and my simple beam:
