Our annual Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition is back again this January! For this event, we welcome both student teams and professional teams to build a bridge using 100 popsicle sticks and a bottle of glue. Prize money is at stake for the student teams, and for the professional teams the bragging rights that come with successfully completing a small design-build project. More info is included in the documents below, including the specifications, entry form, and information on the student competition and the professionals’ challenge. Teams (student and professional alike) can register by email or in person at the Civil & Geological Engineering Department office (3B48 Engineering). Supply kits are available free of charge to all teams, and can be picked up from the Civil & Geological Engineering office also. Teams are also welcome to purchase their own supplies, as long as they conform to the instructions for the competition. After the bridge competition, please join for Professionals’ Night at a pub near campus! We will acknowledge the winners and award prizes at Professionals’ Night, so be sure to join us to celebrate!
We hope to see you at this great event!
