Northern Technology Engineering Society (NTES) is proudly supporting APEGBC’s annual Popsicle Bridge Building Contest in Prince George. Here is some information regarding the event:
In celebration of the upcoming National Engineering and Geoscience Month (March 2017) challenge your friends or colleagues to see who can build the stronger bridge! This is a fun event for all ages. In addition to the bridge contest there will be fun engineering and geoscience booths to check out.
Bring your constructed bridge to the event on April 1, 2017. The goal is to construct the strongest bridge possible with a maximum 100 Popsicle sticks and all-purpose white glue. The sticks must be left whole; otherwise the design of the bridge is left up to the competitor. See the 2017 rules and guidelines for further information about the contest.
PLEASE NOTE: Bridges must meet a minimum width of 50mm. Please review the new rules and guidelines before designing your bridge.
