Competition Weekend

Our team is proud to announce that we placed 5th overall at the 2017 Steel Bridge Competition!

Twenty members of our team made their way down to Fargo, ND this past Thursday, March 30th for the 2017 Midwest Regional Student Steel Bridge Competition hosted by North Dakota State University. A total of 12 teams attended the competition.

At the 2017 competition:

  • We built our bridge in record time – only 18 minutes!
  • Placed 2nd in display
  • Placed 5th overall
  • Our bridge had a deflection of 1.75″ after being loaded with 2500 lbs

The team had a great time, we want to thank everyone who supported our journey!

Here are some photos from this year’s competition hosted by NDSU in Fargo.
