First Annual Spaghetti Bridge Challenge!


March 14, 2017

MONCTON — In collaboration with the Université de Moncton, Resurgo Place is proud to announce the first annual Spaghetti Bridge Challenge! Using only uncooked spaghetti, white glue, and hot glue, various teams of university and college students will design their own bridge to see how much weight it will be able to withstand before snapping. 

Saturday, March 18, 10 a.m.

The build begins!

Teams have until 5 pm that day to complete their structure. Visitors are invited to come watch and vote for their favourite design! Bridges will be on display during the following week.

Saturday, March 25, 1:30 p.m.

Bridges are put to the test!

Visitors are invited to come watch the moment of truth! Which bridge will be able to withstand the most weight? The winning team will have the honor of becoming the inaugural winners of the Resurgo Plate Award!

*Activity is included with paid admission*
