Chimo Elementary School to Host UCDSB’s 2018 Regional Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition

Smiths Falls – Chimo Elementary School will host the 2018 Regional Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition on Wednesday, April 4, 2018, held in partnership with the Thousand Islands Chapter of Professional Engineers of Ontario (PEO).

The contest encourages student teams to build small bridges out of Popsicle sticks and glue, based on guidelines provided by PEO. Bridges are then “stress-tested” using a special hand-cranked machine known as “BUSTER!” to determine how much load they can bear.
