ASCE Engineers Week
6th, 7th, and 8th grade students! It's time to test your imagination and your technical skill! The Illinois Valley Branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is sponsoring the 26th Annual Bridge Contest.
Design and construct a bridge using standard 3” x 5” (176 mm x 127 mm) index cards. The winning team will be judged based on team participation, conformance to the design and construction requirements, a written report, and finally, the performance of the bridge under a dead load.
Wed, Feb 1: Registration deadline
Sat, Feb 18: Drop off your bridge at the Peoria Riverfront Museum
Sun, Feb 19: Contest and awards at the Peoria Riverfront Museum (part of Engineering Day)
