APEGBC Popsicle Bridge Building Contest

breaking pointThe Popsicle Bridge Building Contest is hosted by the Association of Physical Engineers and Geoscientists of BC at the West Kootenay & Boundary Regional Science Fair.  Using a bridge-building kit that includes 300 popsicle sticks and glue, children, youth and adults craft bridges that they hope can withstand the most force during a load-testing competition.

Goals of the Popsicle Bridge Building Contest are to increase youth understanding of and engagement in engineering and to increase interest in studies and careers in engineering.
