CSCE Saskatoon – Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition Wed., Jan. 29th

January 29, 2020 @ 5:00 pm UTC-6

Our annual popsicle stick bridge competition will be held on Wednesday, January 29th in the Structures Lab at the U of S Engineering Building.  Supply kits are available from the 3rd floor Civil, Geo, and Environmental Engineering office in the Engineering Building at the U of S.

We are excited to announce two changes to the contest specs this year!  First, we are adding twine to the supply kit, that may be used in the design and construction of the bridges.  Second, we are changing the loading configuration from a flat plate across the top of the bridge to two bars creating point loads.  Check out the competition specs here!  The entry form is also available in the specs package.

We are pleased to have both the student and professionals categories in this year’s competition.  Check out the further details below:
