 For the competition, the PCMS Model Bridge team constructed a balsa wood bridge using the specifications provided by the NCDOT, wrote a report on the history of bridge building, drew a full scale blue print of their bridge and gave an oral presentation explaining the merits of the bridge the team entered in the competition. By winning the Regional Competition, the PCMS Model Bridge team qualified for the state finals in Raleigh, NC on April 17.
