Popsicle stick bridges

The third annual popsicle stick bridge contest was held at the Avon Library and hosted by the Vail Valley Homeschool Group. We had some beautiful bridges that held up to 120 pounds made by kids ages 7-13. We want to thank the library for allowing us to use their space, the kids for doing an amazing job, the parents for everything they do to help make the event happen and Sean Molloy from Martin/Martin Engineers in Avon. Martin/Martin gave some of the prizes and Sean especially made the event fantastic. We want to say a special thanks to him because he took extra time to teach the kids all about bridges and structures, and specifically discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each bridge with each child individually. Keep building, and see you all next year.
