CSCE Saskatoon is excited to announce another installment of our annual Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition! We will be hosting this event on Thursday, January 31st. The competition is open to both student and professional teams, and is one of our favourite events each year! Last year was a record-setting year, and we hope to see more records set this year too! The competition is open to student and professional teams, with bragging rights and a brand new trophy for the Professionals’ Challenge and great monetary prizes for the Student Competition!
The event will take place in the Structures Lab at the U of S; registration will start at 5 pm, and testing will commence at 5:30 pm. We will have a short reception in the Structures Lab following the testing, and we will award the prizes for both student and professional teams there. The winning team in the Professionals’ Challenge will also have the honour of being the first team to have their names added to our brand new trophy!
Supply kits are available free of charge for all teams (student and professional) from the Dept. of Civil, Geological, and Environmental Engineering office at the U of S (Room 3B48, 3rd floor of the Engineering Building). (Teams are also welcome to buy their own supplies, as long as they comply with the contest instructions.)
Teams can consist of 1 to 4 people. It is free for all students to enter the student competition. The entry fee for professional teams is $75.
