Assessment: EV3 Bridge Building for Lowest Bid

Assessment Type: 

This extension of the Bridge Building Challenge by Jessica Wade (Jefferson Middle School, Olympia WA) requires student to not only build a bridge that will span the longer dimension of the EV3 Kit, but also calculate the "cost" of the bridge in a spreadsheet to see who can build a bridge that meets the required specifications, but do it for the lowest bid. The Challenge Sheet (including grading rubric) and Budget (cost/bid) spreadsheet are attached.
