Billiken BEAMS Competition
This competition is open to students currently enrolled in high schools in the metropolitan Saint Louis area. The Billiken BEAMS Competition is a group-based project opportunity in which students use their innovation skills to build a structure and then compete against other groups throughout the Saint Louis area.
This year’s challenge is “A Bridge to Civil Engineering” in which student groups construct a supported road based bridge out of balsa wood. The winning team will design, construct and test the most effective bridge that meets competition evaluation criteria.
