During the last part of first semester, Kaysville Jr High's 9th grade engineering class wanted to build a suspension bridge that would hold the entire class. The students calculated all the math, drew up the plans, and wrote each job description. This included the loading calculations for the main cable, and deck bending movements, the math formulas for the main cable and deck layout, abutment loads, caisson and footing details, and tower construction. It has been a very intense learning experience. The class all stood on it and it held great. Calculating with students standing on it, it held well over 2000 lbs (a Ton).
