Grahamwood Students Build Award Winning Bridges!

Grahamwood Elementary students, under the leadership of 3rd grade teachers Gabby Davis and Grace Henderson, participated in the annual University of Memphis STEM bridge building competition. About 15 elementary and middle schools were represented. Two teams of Grahamwood students used the KNEX rods to construct a bridge that could withstand 36 pounds for 3 minutes. Students had 30 minutes to build their structure before the weight test. Grahamwood Elementary was a top finisher with Ms. Henderson stating, “Unlike most of the other competitors, both of our teams were successful in building bridges that supported 36 pounds for the full time.” Way to go, Grahamwood!
