The Beam Bridge is the most basic but not super-strong.
This is one type of truss bridge with only two very long supports.
This truss bridge uses shorter steel beams, Our hypothesis is that this will be the strongest. (But we won't tell you our results).
The arch bridge is yet another popular design.
Here we opted for another beam bridge but with vertical beams for extra support
