The Bridge Design Contest
The West Point Center for STEM Education is pleased to offer the 12th annual The Bridge Design Contest for High School Students and is happy to announce our first ever national Middle School Contest. Watch our website for more information about both contests soon!
The purpose of the contest is to provide middle school and high school students with a realistic, engaging introduction to engineering. We provide this contest as a service to education.
The contest will provide you the opportunity to:
Learn about engineering through a realistic, hands-on problem-solving experience.
Learn about the engineering design process-the application of math, science, and technology to create devices and systems that meet human needs.
Learn about truss bridges and how they work.
Learn how engineers use the computer as a problem solving-tool.
