Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority Sponsors University of South Florida – Selmon Expressway Bridge Competition

Tampa, FL., January 28, 2019 – Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA) announces its sponsorship of University of South Florida (USF) College of Engineering’s 27th annual Bridge Competition. The competition will take place at USF’s Engineering Expo on February 16th, 2019 and is open to all Hillsborough and Pinellas County middle and high school students.

The USF-SE Bridge Competition began in the 1980’s as a student-run project to connect the University with area under-represented middle and high school students and provide a fun, extra-educational enrichment opportunity in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) philosophies. The competition’s theme of Design It, Build It, Break It! allows teams of three students to design and build balsawood model bridges and test their load capacities.

Teachers and student teams are encouraged to watch workshop videos on the competition’s webpage (https://usfbalsabridge.weebly.com/workshop-videos.html), which provide an opportunity to prepare for the competition, and then develop lesson plans that incorporate the fields of engineering and design with math and science through bridge building.

Through its partnership with USF, THEA seeks to provide mentorship, encourage the STEM mindset, and raise educational opportunities for Tampa Bay area students. The USF-SE Balsa Bridge Competition is a branch of THEA’s Selmon STEM Scholarship Program, which supports through education and exposure to transportation careers, USF engineering students who are graduates of Hillsborough County high schools.
