Spaghetti Bridge Contest

The 19th Annual Spaghetti Bridge Competition

The Civil Engineering Department at Camosun College will be hosting the Nineteenth Annual Spaghetti Bridge Competition during Open House Thursday May 3rd, 2012.

The competition will be open to all, with separate competitions for the following four divisions:

Students may build their bridges before the competition or they can build them at Camosun on the 5th.  To register, please contact us.  The bridges are to be constructed entirely out of spaghetti and hot melt glue.  The bridges will be loaded until they collapse.  The bridges will be judged based on the ratio of the maximum load held before collapsing compared to the weight of the bridge.  For the complete details see the official rules.  More details will be posted as we get closer to the event.
