2006 Freshman Engineering Design Competition

Each structure was compressed in a testing machine that gradually added weight until the structure failed, or was ‘crushed’ under the pressure of the weight. While the structures were tested in a nearby lab, contestants were able to watch the ‘crush-off’ via webcast, enjoying pizza and soft drinks provided by the Biosystems Engineering & Soil Science department.
