Saturday, November 14th, 2020- Syracuse Academy of Science high school and elementary Atoms were busy at work this past weekend constructing, designing and winning divisions of this year’s CNY Bridges: Build ‘Em and Bust ‘Em Challenge hosted by the MOST. STEM students were tasked with engineering a balsawood bridge in teams or individually. Students would design and construct a truss bridge built entirely out of glue and balsawood. The day of the competition, participants would submit their bridge for a test of its efficiency rating, a measure of how many times its own weight the bridge could support before the structural failure. Below are the results of all of our participant Atoms!
High School - Division C
- The Bridge Between Sisters: Team # 1957, Yakina Sika - 1st Place
- The Golden Bridge: Team # 2000, Malaysia Green & Maya Plasa - 2nd Place
- Toil & Trouble: Team # 1958, Theodore Simon - 3rd Place & Best Design Award
Congratulations to Leyla Hayali for her hard work, dedication and positive attitude! Although her bridge did not place in this year’s competition, she put in a tremendous amount of effort working hard after school drawing up blueprints and building her bridge. Great job, Leyla!
Congratulations to all of our participant Atoms, we are very proud of all your hard work, dedication and accomplishments!
