The tension in the air at Hodson Hall on the campus of Johns Hopkins University today was broken each time by the exact same sound.
The day marked the culmination for a four-week engineering camp at the school where students from all around the world put their spaghetti to the test.
Bridges made of raw spaghetti were weighted down, little-by-little until the inevitable.
Parents in the audience held their breath with each added weight.
“I think just to get to that point where they put together that bridge and get up there and do this in front of everybody, I think everybody was really proud,” said Tanya Hartman of Cleveland.
The goal – the students get to see if a career in engineering is right for them.
