      Annual USF-SE Balsa Bridge Competition

      We are back with the annual USF-SE Balsa Bridge Competition! Register a team to design a bridge based on the established rules and guidelines, build it, and compete to see which bridge can withstand the most weight before collapsing. Kids have fun throughout the whole process and learn valuable skills in teamwork and engineering. Winning teams are eligible to receive an S3 scholarship from the Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA). Open to middle and high school students from Hillsborough and Pinellas counties.

      Not on a team? Come cheer them on! This FREE family event is part of the USF Engineering Expo, where several of the disciplines in the engineering field will have displays and projects for student interaction and enhanced learning in the sciences and engineering.

      Cost: Free -
