Engineering participated in the 22nd Annual National Engineering Month Bridge Competition

Recruiting efforts were in full force at this year’s 22nd Annual National Engineering Month Bridge Competition. Each year, Memorial’s Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science participates in the annual bridge competition to recruit potential students and to raise awareness around the exciting opportunities that Memorial engineering offers.

Nao, our humanoid robot, helped out at the booth by entertaining visitors with his dance moves and talking about the cool world of Memorial engineering. Visitors also received factsheets on disciplines they were interested in along with admission requirements and guidance on how to prepare in high school.

The annual bridge competition for the St. John’s area, which has traditionally been held at the Johnson GEO CENTRE, is an engineering competition for junior high school students from all across the province. Students build Popsicle stick bridge and they are tested on the day of the competition. The event is held as part of National Engineering and Geoscience Month.
