Here’s a fun—and funny—project that also takes a whole lot of skill! Reilly McManus ’19, who is majoring in Civil Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University’s College of Engineering, was recently featured for her winning project in the challenge to design a bridge connected to a ramp capable of sending a bowling ball, representing 2020, into a toilet bowl! McManus’s bridge, which she completed with a team of hybrid and remote students, used the fewest beams and weighed the least of all the class projects. This achieved the challenge’s goal of infusing concepts like managing tradeoffs in constructability, sustainability, and cost and how the build process integrates with design.

Congratulations, Reilly! Read the full story on CMU’s website.
