Scouts build bridges

Girl Scouts from troops 1044 (Hollywood Hill Elementary and Leota Junior High) and 1227 (Eastridge Elementary) recently participated in a Tiny Truss bridge building contest. Participants were trained in some basic engineering techniques, built their own bridges and tested the amount of weight that each Tiny Truss could hold. Erin McDonald (r.) won 3rd place in the 5th grade and under division. Her bridge held 95 pounds. Also pictured is Kristin Wucherer, a 4th grader at Eastridge.
