Every year, students with an interest in science and engineering gather at the Bureau of Reclamation’s Materials, Engineering and Research Laboratory to test out their homemade, small-scale bridges. Expressions of excitement and anguish were rampant at the 47th Annual High School Bridge Building Competition Saturday, Feb. 22 in Denver. Top winners from across the state took home prizes, scholarships and the opportunity to represent Colorado at the International Bridge Building Competition in Chicago. http://on.doi.gov/1l9FRUk
