holy brick!

 

Another school project.

Using as little material as possible, create a structure to suspend and eight inch standard brick over a 12 inch span.

I used 4 bamboo skewers and cut them to form two small structures. Then I wrapped thread around the joints and hot glued it together.

The structures use the brick as a structural member and balances on the edge of the gap.

The “bridge” weighs in at 3 grams and is supporting over five pounds. Now that is strenth to weight!
