Carleton University Troitsky Bridge Building Team is a student group that provides opportunities to undergraduate engineering students to apply the concepts learned in their classes to a real world situation through competing in the annual Troitsky Bridge Building Competition held in Montreal. The competition allows students to compete in a nationwide competition improving their teamwork, analytical and presentation skills in a positive environment, building large bridge models out of strictly wooden popsicle sticks, white glue, and floss. The event finale is a crushing ceremony in which the University’s prove their spirit and bridge strength.
This year with the global pandemic the event has been modified to accommodate the inability to travel to Montreal. The teammates will still design and build bridges, in a safe and distanced manner.
Funding this team is incredibly important to the students who will be working as a team and gaining invaluable experience and making friends. The students attending the Troitsky Bridge Building Competition will be able to hone their engineering skills in a team environment, and represent Carleton at a national level.
The funds secured from you help make the modified event possible. Every amount donated will go towards registration, building, and spirit, offsetting the out of pocket costs of our team members, and ensuring success for our team.
Every donation is critical to the development of our young engineering students and will hopefully help the bridges built achieve high rankings at the competition; the only thing stronger will be the bonds built among competitors.
