Description

The Queen’s Bridge Building Team (QBBT) is a multi-disciplinary engineering design team at Queen’s University formed of sub-teams of four to six members. Each sub-team designs and constructs innovative bridges solely from popsicle sticks, white glue, dental floss and toothpicks. Team members come up with inventive ways to take their ideas from paper to creating a bridge spanning a one-metre distance. Team members compete annually in the Troitsky Bridge Building Competition, held by Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. The Troitsky Bridge Building Competition represents an opportunity to expose the spirit, creativity and knowledge of Queen’s engineers to future professionals and industry partners. In addition, Team members will be able to connect with students from other Universities, as well as have the opportunity to experience the Montreal culture.
