Algonquin Bridge Building Challenge
April 6 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
This popsicle stick bridge-building challenge is open to students in grades 5 to 12 from the Ottawa Valley. Teams of students build their bridges according to the rules provided ahead of the event. They present their bridge to a judging panel consisting of professional engineers. Bridges will be tested to failure with students watching the results in person. Prizes are awarded for the most successful bridges (defined as the highest strength-to-weight ratio). Contact Bob Radenovic, P.Eng., 613-584-3311, Ext 45141 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
