Civil and Mechanical Engineering

Civil engineering has to deal with the process of design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally build environment whil emechanical engineering applies the principles of physics and materials science for design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. With both of these in mind, we had to construct a bridge made of balsa wood that could carry the load of a car with three bricks on top. Between our teamwork and ideas of success, we were able to have the car drive smoothly across the bridge without it breaking. To see our presentation click on the Prezi link below.
