STEM Bridge Building Competition
Middle School STEM Project

AUGUST, 2019 -- This amazing bridge design was unique from any of the professional designs we studied so we had to come up with an entirely new term to describe it. Behold the Triple Triangle Truss Bridge by Nicolai Engineers.

This bridge, constructed only of Popsicle sticks and Elmer’s school glue, held 95 pounds before failing under the load! This performance blasted the old school record of 47 pounds. 

Two other teams held as much as 45 pounds or more and one team actually had a better bridge weight to carriage weight ratio.  Jay Squared Designers (John Suggs and Jett Harris) built a small but mighty bridge that held 340 grams for every gram of weight! The ratio of Nicholai Engineers was 319:1.

Congratulations to all the innovative and entrepreneurial bridge designers who engineered cost effective and efficient solutions for the Hot Wheels Highway! 

Congratulations to our 2019-2020 Ambassadors

The following Juniors have been selected to serve as Ambassadors for the 2019-2020 school year:
