In February to March of 2016 the APEGBC Fraser Valley Branch is hosting two Popsicle Stick Bridge Building Competitions in Surrey and Agassiz as part of National Engineering & Geoscience Month 2016. The Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition challenges students, age 9 to 14 years (grades 5 to 9), to build a bridge using only popsicle sticks and glue and design it to be capable of holding heavy loads. Load bearing capacity is tested during the day of the event. This event has been running over the last few years with a very good participation from schools in the Fraser Valley.

We are asking for donations to help us run these events. We are looking to raise a total of $3,000 to successfully run both competitions. Small donations between $50 to $500 form the core of the donations, but higher amounts are welcome.

This money goes towards catering of the bridge building workshops and the event itself, providing prizes for the strongest bridges and the most creative designs, shipping bridge building kits to students, and other event costs. Your assistance would go a long way to help us promote the profession to the next generation of engineers and geoscientists. Please follow the link below to sponsor us.
Your name or organization name will be proudly listed on the certificates we distribute to the students, a banner on the day of the event, and on our branch newsletter.
