Each team participating must bring at least 50 Bridge Trading Card and small scale bridge model and set them up with their full scale bridge. At least one member must stand by the bridge to hand out trading cards during the entire event.

Students will start at the Steel Bridge Engineering Evening booth to collect a trading card ring. They will walk to each team to collect cards, look at scale models, and learn about engineering. 

Share your passion for civil engineering on March 1 at Depot Park by participating in Spirit Outreach. Each university must create a Bridge Trading Card and small scale model based on Steel Bridge Design. The purpose of this event is for each team to participate in outreach by exposing local students to aspects of bridge design.
A Steel Bridge Trading Card may include a drawing/image of the bridge, bridge specs, unique bridge qualities, and university name on the front. The back must include a “How To” build a small model bridge out common materials (i.e. straws, popsicle sticks, toothpicks). The “How To” must include some unique aspect of the bridge. For example, if a team uses flexible joints on their bridge, their small scale bridge might include straw joints. Teams must print 50 Bridge Trading Cards and hand them out to students during Steel Bridge Display on March 1 at Depot Park.
A small scale bridge model based on the “How To” must be displayed by bridge display and by trading cards. The small scale bridge must be a maximum of 1’x1’x1’. A basket to hold trading cards and small table top for small scale bridge is suggested but not required. Please use the template provided.
A panel of judges will rank submittals based on the criteria chart. Cards must be submitted as a pdf before February 16 to submit@se-asce2018.com. Judges will collect 1 card from each team and view small scale bridge model during Steel Bridge Aesthetic Judging on March 1.
