Example Popsicle Stick Bridge Activity:

Decklayout

I began by visualizing what the deck of my bridge will look like with cross beams.

Deck

Next I assembled two sets of runners for the deck with towers supports. (One set is shown)

runners

The sets of the mainspan and towers were then connected with crossbeams.

crossbracing

Cross beams were also added to the towers supports, as well as guides for the suspension string.

Finalbridge

The final step was the addition of the suspension string.
