Southwest Georgia Regional Model Bridge Building Contest

4C Academy at 9 a.m.
The Bridge Building Competition provides middle and high school students with realistic engineering problems while developing excitement about careers in science, math, engineering, and technology. Students test their problem solving and engineering design skills by creating structurally efficient balsa wood bridges under very demanding physical specifications. Bridges are tested for structural efficiency by measuring its breaking load relative to overall mass.
