Okay, you can only use spaghetti noodes and white glue. The bridge needs to span 30 cm. It needs to be at least 6 cm wide. A toy car has to be able to drive across it. There needs to be a flat surface to place books on it. The winner will be the lightest bridge that can hold the most weight.

This is true. I had to do the same thing in 9th grade but with Popsicle sticks.

Build one of these and you will probably get an A.

I've never had to do a project like this. My school saves arts and crafts for Art class
