Try making a tube.
Paper is good for that.

Paper tubes are good, but 1 crinkle or wrinkle will destroy that tube. It's not that durable.

Our first idea was to have two layers of paper. It is a lot more durable, but takes more time.
So we went down to just one layer, and that still works.

What challenge did you get for States? How long are you able to make your bridge and ramp?

We got Ramp at States, and we are able to make both things as long as we can--provided we have enough materials.

Our box was rather small, so we couldn't fit a lot of paper, etc. to make a very long ramp/bridge.

I'm hoping we should get our Bridge to be 11,000 mm long (that was our challenge at Regionals; the 1st place team got that).

How are you able to make your bridge 11 meters long? What do you do?

Some people have thought of this already. Again, I can't expose the exact details, but it involves 2 very high towers and LOTS of cups. The 2 supports at the end are angled.

Then what's in the middle of the towers?

The 2 towers are made of cups, and the bottom is angled so that it won't collapse on us.
