Carleton University Troitsky Bridge Building Team is a student run 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. This competition allows students to compete nationwide to improve their teamwork, analytical and presentation skills in a positive environment while building large bridge models out of strictly wooden popsicle sticks, white glue, and dental floss. The students present their designs to a panel of industry professional judges and then the event finale is a crushing ceremony in which the University’s prove both their spirit, and bridge strength.
Funding this team is incredibly important to the students who will be working together to gain valuable experience and will be making friends/connections in the industry. 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 event possible. Every amount donated will go towards registration, building, and spirit costs, offsetting the out of pocket costs for our team members, ensuring they will all be able to participate. These funds also help us generate 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.
