Get A Headstart!

Just a heads-up that we will be hosting our annual popsicle stick bridge competition this January.  If you want to get a jump start on building your entry for this year’s competition, supply kits are available starting at noon today from the 3rd floor Civil, Geo, and Environmental Engineering office in the Engineering Building at the U of S.

We are excited to announce two changes to the contest specs this year!  First, we are adding twine to the supply kit, that may be used in the design and construction of the bridges.  Second, we are changing the loading configuration from a flat plate across the top of the bridge to two bars creating point loads.  Check out the competition specs here!
