Welcome to ASCE Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition!
ASCE annually hosts a Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition (PSBC) for high school students in the Los Angeles, Orange County and San Bernardino/Riverside County area. This event brings together hundreds of local high school students to participate in a full-day celebration of math, science, and engineering. Through this competition, the students will gain exposure to the civil engineering profession while learning about the design process, team work, and meeting deadlines. The Popsicle stick bridges will be designed and constructed by the students prior to the event. On the day of the competition, the students will present their bridge and test the strength of their bridge under a loading machine. This competition is a fun way for students to think critically, learn about problem solving, be innovative and collaborative, and recognize the importance of pursuing higher education.
This year the 22nd Annual Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition will be held at the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC) on Saturday, February 20. The registration window is now open for high schools that would like to sign up. Sign up at psbc2016.eventbrite.com
ASCE OC YMF is looking for volunteers for this event. It is a great opportunity for the volunteers to experience how much this event helps encourage many high school students to consider engineering as a prospect career path.
