BMI – 2023 Wood Bridge Challenge | February 20, 2023

MC would like to wish our staff and colleagues a Happy Engineers Week!  

Earlier this month, we had the privilege to be a sponsor for the Baltimore Museum of Industry (BMI) 2023 Wood Bridge Challenge. Local high school students competed to build the most “efficient” basswood and glue bridge to span a one-foot gap. The most efficient bridge is one that carries the most load, relative to its own weight (Load/Bridge Weight). On behalf of MC, Senior Engineer, Robert Miller attended the event, and his 6-year-old son was able to test out his own bridge which held nearly 200 lbs. The future of MC looks promising!

If you know of any aspiring engineers, BMI has other engineering challenges coming up for students in grades 1-12 which you can find on their website.  Help us build the future of engineering today!
