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.

Engineers Week was founded in 1951 by the National Society of Professional Engineers. EWeek is dedicated to raising public awareness of engineers’ contributions to society
It promotes an understanding of just how essential technical education and advanced levels of math, science, and technology are to students. The goal is to motivate youth to pursue engineering careers in order to sustain a diverse and strong engineering workforce.
EWeek reaches thousands of schools, universities, corporations and organizations nationally. Parks College is proud to be part of the celebration and tradition of EWeek!
