The Annual Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers Bridge Building Competition is set for Saturday, March 8 at Penn State York in the Conference Center of the Main Classroom Building. Watch the breaking of the bridges beginning at 2 p.m. The bridges are built ahead of time and brought to the competition. Bridge registration is from 12:30–1:30 p.m. with the competition starting at 2 p.m. Spectators are invited to attend and watch as the bridges are destroyed.

The event, sponsored by the Lincoln Chapter of the Pennsylvania Society for Professional Engineers, offers high school students a chance to construct a bridge and then test it to see how strong it is. Trophies and cash prizes are awarded to the top three winners and each participant receives a T-shirt.
