Virtual Bridge Building Competition 2021

As part of National Engineering and Geoscience Month (NEGM), an annual celebration of engineering and geoscience across Canada, the West Kootenay Branch is hosting a virtual bridge building competition. The goal of this event is to promote the awareness of the engineering and geoscience professions, showcase career choices, and the many ways in which engineering and geoscience relate to our everyday life.

Participants will utilize popsicle sticks and glue to build bridges which will then be tested using a bridge buster.

Results will be made available upon the conclusion of the event.
