Build ‘Em, Bust ‘Em!

Tronix Tuesdays took a dozen students to the Civil Engineers National Steel Bridge Building contest at the University of Minnesota in March.  Tronix students watched the U of M compete with five other Midwest schools to build the toughest steel bridge and then had the opportunity to put their knowledge to the test! Three teams of students built balsa wood bridges that they tested for strength.

Thanks to the student chapter of the ASCE for an exciting day of engineering!
