CTYI Bridge Building Competition

Dr Joseph Stokes, Head of School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering ran a module on Materials and held a Bridge Building competition for CTYI (Centre for Talented Youth Ireland) students across the summer.

Four teams pitch against each other to develop the lightest but strongest bridge, which had to carry weight over a span of 1.5 metres.
