The bridge was made from carbon fibers and epoxy resin supplied by SAMPE France. A very simple architecture: compression bars and yarns under tension. The bat wings and the deck of the bridge complete the structure.

The ladies are undergraduate students involved in Physics Measurements training. They really did well in terms of accuracy for all the practical duties in this project.
