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.

Come join the Vancouver Island for our Popsicle Stick Bridge Building Competition at the Country Club Centre. Load testing will begin at 11:30 AM on Sunday, April 3, 2016. Bridges are tested to failure, so remember to take your pictures early.

To pick up the building materials, contestants may buy the kits at the Country Club Centre lotto kiosk throughout the month of March until the event. Please download and read the rules provided below. To enter, bring the completed bridges to the event.
