Young engineers take on the teachers in bridge building challenge

Published by Admin

The final event of Math Weeks was the bridge building competition. Our 4 island communities competed against each other and against 5 tournament of the mind teams, and a staff team, to see who could design and build the best bridge using only the limited materials provided. Teamwork, engineering design, efficiency and building quality were all part of the formula for winning this challenge. Bridges were judged on their length, the beauty of their design, and finally on their strength (by seeing how many Maths books the bridge could support before collapsing!). The teachers won the first 2 categories (no bias in the judging, honest!) but the real challenge was how many books could be supported. The winning bridge made by the Samet team supported over 50 maths books and still didn’t come apart. Their creative use of weaving techniques helped to spread out the forces incredibly well!
