Students from across Mississippi to Compete in TRAC Bridge Building Competition

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Middle and high school students from around the state will compete in the Transportation and Civil Engineering (TRAC) Bridge Building Competition at the Clyde Muse Center in Pearl.

Students will be showcasing and testing model bridges they've constructed for mechanics and strength--to-weight ratio before a panel of judges.

The TRAC program, hosted by the Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT), introduces students to a wide variety of career opportunities in the field of engineering and teaches students how to apply math and science concepts to help identify and resolve engineering barriers in the transportation system.

The competition starts the beginning of next week.
