DSS Bridge Building

On Wednesday 24 February we held our DSS Bridge Building competition. 16 teams participated. Each team built a bridge from drinking straws and pins.


Those who attended the competition know that there was a query about one of the bridges. A rematch has since happened. The affected team has built and tested another bridge since that time. There was a tie for third position. These bridges carried 1,3kg each. The team members are:
Melissa Schneider
Estera Pop
Tlholo Mosebi

S’phephelo Mngomezulu
Bonginkosi Chonco
Mfundo Mkhwanazi

In second position, with a bridge which carried 1,7kg, were:
Wouter-Jan Mout
Etienne Husslig
Jonathan Lopez

The winners’ bridge carried 2,4kg. These learners will participate in this year’s Pietermaritzburg model bridge building competition later this year:
