GOAL: To design and build a bridge type structure in one of two categories: Toothpick Category and OpenMaterials Category. After entrants have designed and built their bridges, the event provides a convenient, funfilled place to test them and see how well they work.
ENTRANTS: Open To All. Students, parents, sponsoring engineers, and teachers are welcome to submit bridges! Each entrant will receive a certificate with the results of the bridge test, an event T-shirt, and other interesting stuff. We hope that this event will introduce students to careers in engineering.
ADMISSION: FREE to all.
Participants will build their bridges in advance and bring them to the event. There the bridges will be tested to failure (i.e. broken) to measure their load carrying ability, and certificates issued.
