South Bergen Bridge Competition

SOUTH HACKENSACK, New Jersey -- With only their hand-drawn or digitally-made blueprints and a few boxes of unopened K’NEX kits in front of them, students from twelve Southern Bergen County districts had just one hour to build a bridge that could withstand both an earthquake and some weighted plates.
