Building better bridges

  • During a state competition hosted by the New Hampshire Department of Transportation’s Transportation and Civil Engineering, Ninth grade students Jacob Boette, left, Lucas Johnson, and Harrison Browne from Wilton-Lyndeborough Cooperative Middle and High School submitted a bridge of popsicle sticks which was able to hold 166 pounds. Their bridge was constructed solely with popsicle sticks and hot glue, and had to be wide enough that a matchbox car could travel along the bridge deck without meeting any obstructions. Winners were awarded in design and strength categories.  —Courtesy photo
