SEATTLE, Feb. 5, 2018--On
Feb. 10 two free, perennial events provide a wonderland and a haven for
young geeks when the Popsicle Stick Bridge Building Contest and the
Engineering Fair return to the Museum. The remarkably rambunctious
Bridge Contest is a spectacle for families. The Engineering Fair is a
curiously fun mix of hands-on robot, gizmo and even gumdrop activities
for junior engineers.
Popsicle Stick Bridge Contest
run high on Saturday morning, as teams of high school students from
around Puget Sound compete to have their dreams shattered in front of a
large audience of parents and peers. It is all engineered for good fun
at the annual Popsicle Stick Bridge Building Contest
sponsored by the Younger Member Forum of the American Society of Civil
Engineers. Competitors must design and build small bridges that are
strong and aesthetically pleasing while using only Popsicle sticks and
white glue. The bridges are judged for creativity, and then subjected to
the pressures of a hydraulic press until they snap. The longest-lasting
and most original structures win. Event runs 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., free.
Puget Sound Engineering Council Engineering Fair
The universal span of engineering is demonstrated at The Puget Sound Engineering Council's annual Engineering Fair at The Museum of Flight. Youths interested in engineering can learn all about exciting career opportunities by talking to professionals in the field including those from NASA, Boeing and universities. Student clubs will be in force, and there are plenty of hands-on activities for young children. The event is free, and runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
