ENTE 220 students test bridges made out of spaghetti

The engineering technology students in Kellogg Community College instructor Pat Kopf’s “Statics and Strengths of Materials” (ENTE 220) class spent their morning testing the strengths of bridges they created out of spaghetti.

The students’ bridges were weighed and tested by hanging a five-pound weight from their centers, and students were awarded bonus points based on the lightness of their designs and whether or not they collapsed with the weight after four minutes.
