  1. I am competing in a Science Olympiad competition, and I was wondering if you had the plans or measurements for this bridge. Don’t worry, not in Missouri, I am up in Mass. This is my first year of bridge building, and I was impressed with this bridge, and I would appreciate any help. Thank you.

  2. The MSPE folks obliged me by testing this bridge. The 21 gram basswood bridge held 204.2 lbs surpassing the record of this region for the entire 23 years. So, Central kids, it’s possible to do well at this competition.

    • That is an efficiency score of 4420, which is very nice indeed.

    • What do you suggest when it comes to the design to hold the most weight?

    • Is there an aspect ration for this bridge?
