Bridge Building Competition

Hosted by the Department of Civil Engineering during the annual Engineer’s Week celebration, the model bridge competition requires high school students to build a bridge using only balsa and wood glue to span a distance of 24 inches. The bridges are tested to destruction and the maximum load is recorded. Prizes are awarded for the best design and for the bridge with the largest strength to weight ratio!
