Toothpick Bridge Project

I never thought that a strong bridge can be made out of toothpicks and ordinary glue. This is what I found out as I watched my brother take on his Toothpick Bridge project for his Math subject. The challenge was to create a bridge made purely of toothpicks and glue that can withstand the strength test while incorporating the designated geometric figure which is the triangle.

Design Test:

As you can see, the triangle figure was maximized. Each triangle was painstakingly formed and allowed to dry before being glued together. Smaller triangles were formed in between by adding toothpicks. 

Strength Test:

The finished toothpick bridge was subjected to the drop test. It should not have a single misplaced piece after being dropped to the floor. It should also be able to withstand the weight of a medium-sized hardbound book as shown above. Luckily, my brother's project survived both tests earning him a perfect score of 100%.

Play Test:

And now for the play test...It can be a very interesting addition to our toys although I'm not really sure how it will fare in the hands of very young children. Let's just see.
