Properly assembled, the bridges in the above plans can carry 1,000 times their own weight but they are not the ultimate design. This album highlights the Popsicle Stick Bridge that I entered into the Seattle ASCE Younger Member Forum’s Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition in 2009.
Video highlighting the top three bridges from the Maine Transportation Conference Popsicle Stick Bridge Contest. Here is a sneak peak at one of my newest creations: a model suspension bridge made from popsicle sticks and parachute cord.
At our college earlier this year, we had to build a bridge using popsicle sticks within one hour.
As soon as the first glue joint pops, repair it and think how you can reinforce that weak point. If you just place it on a flat surface, you'll have to tie the feet together with non-stretching string or wire, else you'll just have a weak beam bridge carrying less than 50 lbs. Let the glue soak in for a few seconds or prime the surfaces with a thin glue solution first.
As far as I know, this is the longest working popsicle stick bridge that a person can walk across.
I have attached a picture of the bridge we constructed, that eventually won the first place.
The largest popsicle bridge was built back in 2008 in my dorm room at Prairie Bible College.
For many nights I slept on the floor, as I was using my bed space as a worktable to glue the bridge together.
