SEEDS: ENGINEERING OUTREACH

Gumdrop Bridges 


 Wu Shock has discovered a treasure trove of sweets on Candy Island, just across the river. In order to bring the candy back to share with the Shockers, he needs a sturdy bridge that can bear the weight of trucks full of candy. Wichita State has gathered the best and brightest of its future engineers in the SEEDS program. Their challenge is to design a bridge to retrieve the candy. The winning design will have to use available materials and meet stringent safety guidelines. Participants must manage their time and materials, while practicing good design strategy to compete to build the strongest bridge.
