Passions run high as teams of high school students from around Puget Sound compete to have their dreams shattered in front of a large audience of parents and peers. Competitors must design and build small bridges that are strong and aesthetically pleasing while using only Popsicle sticks and white glue. The bridges are judged for creativity, and then subjected to the pressures of a hydraulic press until they snap. The longest-lasting and most original structures win.

FREE with admission.


This competition is organized and run by the American Society of Civil Engineers – Younger Member Forum in the effort to encourage high school students to take an interest in STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). We invite and highly encourage all Western Washington high school students to compete in this fun and educational event!
