Popsicle Stick Bridges by DLSU students

Thirteen entries from DLSU competed in the Popsicle Stick Bridge Building Contest hosted by The Civil Engineering Society (CES). Unfortunately, no entry made it in the winning bridges. The DLSU bridges were also good and well-made. Bridge no. 18 actually garnered the largest load of 111 kg with a displacement of about 25.5 mm, but it was too heavy at 1138 g making a score of only 3.82. DLSU ranked 8th in the design category (Bridge No. 23) and ranked 10th in the strength category (Bridge No. 19).

Congratulations to all DLSU participants!
