Pasta Engineering Competition
Organization: Saint Vincent College
Description: An engineering competition for area high school students, co-sponsored by Carbone’s Restaurant of Crabtree and the Herbert W. Boyer School of Natural Sciences, Mathematics and Computing at Saint Vincent College, will be held at 6 p.m. Monday, March 4 in the Fred M. Rogers Center.
The public is welcome to watch as miniature bridges made out of uncooked pasta are loaded with increasing weights until they collapse.
Forty teams from nine Westmoreland County high schools will participate in this year’s contest including Derry Area, Greensburg Central Catholic, Greensburg Salem, Hempfield Area, Jeannette, Greater Latrobe, Norwin, Penn Trafford and Yough.
The competition is designed to increase high school students’ awareness about the role engineering plays in their lives and the career opportunities in the field and to provide an opportunity for students to collaborate on the design and construction.
