2018 Gingerbread Bridge Competition!

Exactly one year after Girls in STEM teams competed in our first Gingerbread Bridge Competition, we had two new middle school teams compete this year against high school, college, and professional teams in the annual competition hosted by the Structural Engineers Association of Colorado (SEAC).

The teams this year were from Campus Middle School and North Arvada Middle School. The bridges were judged in two categories: Architectural Design and Structural Load.


For structural judging, every bridge was put through the load tester until it cracked under the weight. Everyone took a bite afterwards to prove the bridges were in fact edible!


Thank you to the wonderful parents, professional mentors, sponsors, and SEAC for making this possible!
