Provincial Engineering and Geoscience Week (PEGW) - Spaghetti Bridge Competition

Organizer: Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba

Our annual Spaghetti Bridge Competition, in support of Harvest Manitoba, returns with in-person and virtual options for pre-registered school groups.

K-Grade 12 students compete to build the strongest bridge using just pasta and white or wood glue, then watch as we test it to destruction!

Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba will donate money to Harvest Manitoba based on how strong the bridges are, and entrants are encouraged to bring a 'Tin for the Bin'. The builder(s) of the strongest truss in each class will win a gift card to McNally Robinson, and teachers with at least ten students participating will qualify for a participation gift for their class!
