About the Event
The annual Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition (PSBC), now in its 29th annual year, is an event for high school students that is hosted by ASCE's Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Bernardino/Riverside Younger Member Forums. The event brings together hundreds of local high school students to participate in a full-day competition to celebrate the engineering profession and highlight their achievements. The competition is a great opportunity to emphasize the benefits of pursuing higher education and careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics while promoting the engineering profession in our community.
Prior to the event day, participating high school teams will prepare technical reports, display boards, presentations, and of course – build their Popsicle stick bridges! The rules and specifications for bridge design change each year so it is critical that the teams read through and follow all instructions. On the day of the event, these students (and their bridges) will be put to the test! Volunteers from the civil engineering profession and local college campuses will serve as judges testing the bridges; scoring technical papers, display boards, and presentations; hosting an impromptu competition; and giving tours.
