The construction and testing of model bridges promotes the study and
application of fundamental principles physics and also helps high
school students develop "hands on" skills through bridge construction.
By participating in the Bridge Building Competition students get a
flavor of what it is to be an Engineer, designing structures to a
set of specifications and then seeing them perform their function.
They are also provided with an academically-oriented extracurricular
activity which is recognized school-wide.
About the Contest
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be organizing a 2021 contest.
However, we are planning a 2022 contest and information about this will
be posted here in the summer of 2021. We appreciate all the effort that
our Regional Contest Hosts put into their contests each year and we hope
that you are all safe!
