How to build my bridge By Drew Schlipman

Materials:

Popsicle sticks (over 250)

Elmer's glue

Paper clips

Newspaper

Rubber bands

Water bottles

Tissue boxes

Sides

Steps 1-3 (didn't have enough sticks to do the whole thing)
  1. Get a yardstick and lay sticks down on the side of the yard stick side by side with ends touching, as far as 35 inches
  2. Put a line of glue across the top of the sticks
  3. Get more sticks and line the middle of each stick with the space in between 1 stick and the stick next to it. Then glue them on top of the line of sticks like I explained.
  4. Do steps 1-3 3 more times making 4 lines of sticks
  5. Let the line of sticks dry overnight
  6. Make 18 triangles with no bottom with the bottom being the length of a popsicle stick
  7. Place one line of sticks on the table and another line of sticks 1 sticks length up then glue 9 triangles across those 2 lines of sticks
  8. Do step 6 with the other 2 lines of sticks
Example of triangle

Top
