PolyU STEM Day 2018 - Plastic Stick Bridge Challenge
Seven teams with 4 members each team were given 45 minutes to fabricate plastic stick bridge structures. The bridge structures were judged against maximum loading, lightness, aesthetic and innovation. The workshop provided an opportunity for the students to develop their analytical and communication skills and to acquire structural engineering knowledge through building and testing a plastic stick bridge structure.
