The BKS/SAICE International Bridge Building Competition 2008 started off with a 'bang' on 28 august with a Mystery Ghost bus tour. The learners then came back to the venue, St Alban's College in Pretoria, to prepare for the grueling building of bridges the following day.
On the morning of 29 August, the learners were given a motivational briefing by Don Duffield, at teacher at St Albans and the set-off to build their bridges. They completed their masterpieces by 15:30 and came back that evening to 'test' their work.
The atmosphere was exhilarating as bridge after bridge was loaded with weights and tested to destruction. Our heartiest congratulations to St Johns College from Zimbabwe who's bridge scored the highest, for the second time in a row, on Friday evening. The Competition results can be downloaded (above).
Thank you to all our sponsors, participating teams, SAICE branches and supporters and to all the teams that took part in the competition, we hope you see you all again next year.
