Building bridges

05 June 2006

The Leslie Social Science Building was buzzing on Saturday, May 20, as 23 local schools competed to build a bridge that would carry the heaviest load. Each team of three was asked to design a bridge according to set technical specifications, using a standard set of materials. Drostdy HTS took first place with South Peninsula High School coming in second and Paul Roos Gymnasium third. Drostdy HTS and South Peninsula will now represent the Western Cape in the national finals on July 28. (SAICE Western Cape organises the annual competition to raise awareness and interest in the civil engineering profession among pupils.) In picture, the winners, Drostdy HTS.
