The ASCE Upstate Branch has been hosting the Popsicle Bridge Event since 2009. The event was started by the Upstate Branch members and the Greenville County Schools Challenge Program teachers to help students learn more about math, science, and engineering in a fun and practical way. The students spend approximately 3 months in the classroom learning about bridge design and the challenges of creating a strong, yet lightweight bridge which is essential in today’s real world scenarios of cost efficient design. The 4th grade students construct their bridges with Popsicle sticks and white craft glue and must adhere to certain constraints regarding height, length and width. The bridges are then brought to the competition for final weigh-in and testing as part of the event.
This year the event will be held on March 9, 2024 at the Greenville Convention Center and we are looking for sponsors to help us cover the costs of holding the event. If you are interested but have more questions, feel free to visit our website ( http://www.asceupstate.com/popsicle-bridge-event.html ) or reach out to us for more information. Please note that logo/name advertisement for any sponsorships received after February 14, 2023 cannot be guaranteed on event materials due to order lead time requirements. Beyond February 14th we will gladly accept sponsorships but cannot guarantee logo or name advertisement on event materials.
