Assembly

2013 Regional Conference

Once the bridge is completely fabricated, and after the first load test, assembly practice begins.  The assembly team is generally chosen from the members of the team who put in the most fabrication hours.  In order to be chosen as an assembly team member, you must be quick on your feet, possess good hand-eye coordination, and have a great level of dedication.  

Practices usually run a couple hours, three to four nights a week until competition.  The first few runs are generally slow as everyone gradually learns their roles and tasks.  Times are recorded after each completed practice run, so we know how well we are improving.  Once competition time has rolled around, the assembly team has their routine mastered to every detail.
