This event is part of National Engineering and Geoscience Month (NEGM); an annual celebration of engineering and geoscience across Canada. 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. For more information please click below.
The contest goal is to construct the strongest bridge possible using only 100 Popsicle sticks and the white glue provided. Ties will be decided by bridge weight. Some specification for the bridges are included in the contest rules; otherwise the design of the bridge is left to the competitors.
