  1. NICE i think im gunna try that for my tower project. We are only allowed to use 150 sticks tho. I hope i beat everyone else. BTW holding over 600 pounds make the 25 pound weight seem like a leg weight compared to the 600 pounds lol. Very Nice. Gratz

  3. it is a good design **** however this bridge cannot be entered into most popsicle bridge competitions because there are “modified” sticks. The sticks are not supposed to be altered in any way.eg. cut into smaller pieces split down the middle broken etc. (sorry if someone has already pointed this out)

  5. hey guys, i built this thing a few years ago. It ended up holding around 650 pounds before a popsicle stick just sheared in half! and the thing blew up. I dont have any plans for it but i can send a few pictures of it if people are interested. just leave your email on this page and ill send then your way.

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Ps. the middle is raise as there are load bearing cross beams to distribute the load to the trusses.

    • Hi! I would like to see any information that you have on this bridge. My son is having to build one for school and we are researching it.

      Thanks!

    • Hey! I have to build a bridge for physics and he’s having this really cruel grading system. i’d love to see how you made yours if it might help me. And any tips you have would be helpful.
      thanks

  6. Just so you know the weigh of the bridge in the eaquation should not be squared. The equation stays as the 173kg/(0.211)=E , E weight held per kg, so you effiecency would only be 819.905%
