Please join the West Kootenay Branch for their Annual Science & Engineering Fair with Popsicle Stick Bridge Building Competition.

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.

Build a bridge as strong as you can using only the popsicle sticks and glue provided. Bridges are NOT built at the competition, but rather must be built before the competition.
