Hello Bridge Builders!
We are pleased to announce the Annual Chesapeake Lighthouse Foundation TRAC Bridge Building Invitational. The EVENT DATE is set (tentatively) on April 24, 2021 Due to social distancing mandates, each student must participate individually.
There is a maximum limit of 100 students. All application(s) will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. CLF will not be hosting any large, indoor gathering for this event. Virtual participation and social distance measures (when testing/breaking bridges) will be discussed in complete detail with participants.


CLF will provide a TRAC Challenge Entry Kit (balsa wood, glue, precision cutter, cutting mat) to each student to begin their project.  The students are to construct a bridge made only with the materials provided. Detailed guidelines and rubrics are available to download.

Applications will be taken through February 19, 2021.
