Balsa Bridge Middle School Competition

April 12, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Building model bridges promotes the study and application of physics and engineering and helps students develop “hands-on” skills. Participating students get to experience what it is to be an engineer, designing structures to a set of specifications and then see them perform their function.

Teams design, build and load-test a 36” scaled bridge using balsa wood and wood glue. Load testing occurs at MU College of Engineering.
