Thank you to all those who have supported us!
Hello and welcome to the UMass Steel Bridge Team donation page! Thank you for being here!
The AISC Steel Bridge Competition Team is a group of roughly 15 ambitious engineers whose goal is to design, fabricate, and construct a 23-foot-long steel bridge. Eventually, our team of engineers will travel to the regional competition at Northeastern University, where we will face off against other schools to construct the most efficient bridge within the strict rules of the competition. Our bridge will then be tested on its ability to sustain a total load of 2500 pounds vertically and 50 pounds laterally. Judges will rank our bridge based on specific criteria such as construction speed, stiffness, structural efficiency, aesthetics, and more.
If our bridge ranks well enough in our regional competition, we will be granted the opportunity to travel to the AISC Steel Bridge national finals.
The overall objective of our team is to proudly represent UMass Amherst at the AISC Competition, while also generating a long-term, positive environment in which aspiring engineers can grow and learn to thrive in a team setting. Any donations we receive will be used to help us pay for housing/travel expenses, the cost of steel, new tools, and more. We would greatly appreciate any support you could give whether it be a donation or simply spreading the word about our organization. Doing so would make you a crucial factor in the success of our team!
A classic and well respected donation, just like an arch bridge!
A nice and sturdy donation akin to the likes of a powerful steel beam bridge!
A simple yet quite effective donation similar to the efficient design of a simple truss bridge!
A cool and flashy donation that makes us think of a tall suspension bridge!
An impressive and powerful donation that boggles our minds like a complex truss design would!
A trusty and well designed donation that we wouldn't be anywhere without!
A hearty and epic donation taller and bigger than the Sydney Harbor Bridge! Any sponsor who donates $500 or more will have an opportunity to put a name or logo on our team's competition t-shirt.
An enormous donation of legendary proportions; you might as well gift us the Golden Gate Bridge! Anyone who donates in this level will receive a personalized thank you video from our team, in addition to rewards for the previous tier.
