This is a family-friendly competition that puts teams against one another to build the strongest bridge. Engineering theory and building materials will be provided to help you during construction. Last year’s winning team, created a bridge that held over 41KG with no sign of breaking. Check out some of the destructive testing here or photos in our gallery.
