Idea[edit | edit source]

Bridges should be made by every engineer. There is a design competition that anyone can enter. Most model difficult bridges are made out of spaghetti. One contest pays up to $1500 to the winners.

This video comes hints how they made their bridge. It weighed around 2 pounds and held almost 1000 pounds attached to the center of the 1 meter span.

SubSystems[edit | edit source]

  • Form for holding the spaghetti in place while gluing
  • Drying spaghetti in place
  • Computer controlled mechanism to break spaghetti bridges
