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.
