MoDOT will be hosting their 13th Annual Bridge Building Competition on Thursday, November 17th at the Cape West 14 Cine. Juniors and seniors from over 40 area high schools will be participating this year. Senior highway designer for MoDOT, Anita Clark tells KZIM KSIM about the benefit of the event for local, young engineers.
Participants are judged in terms of how light and strong they can make a bridge with only 15 pieces of balsam wood, and a 1 ounce bottle of glue. Prizes include donations from local businesses, as well as various scholarships. For more information, you can contact Anita at (573) 472-5294.
