2016 International Bridge Building Contest – May 7

The 2016 International Bridge Building Contest will be held on Saturday, May 7 at 9:30 a.m. at Illinois Tech. The construction and testing of model bridges promotes the study and application of fundamental principles physics and also helps high school students develop “hands on” skills through bridge construction. By participating in the Bridge Building Competition students get a flavor of what it is to be an engineer, designing structures to a set of specifications and then seeing them perform their function.

You can watch a live stream and see all the results as the contest progresses.
