Secondary Schools Bridge Demonstration Competition was held on 4 March 2019, organized by the Civil and Environmental Engineering Students’ Society of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). Our school won the second runner-up.
The aim of the Competition was to promote the interest among secondary school students in the design and construction of civil engineering structures. Each team was required to use limited number of wooden strips and wires to build a small scale model of a suspension bridge. Then a loading test was conducted. The model should withstand a weighted trolley running across it from a height. The score of the loading test was determined by weight of the load divided by the weight of the bridge. The team with the strongest bridge will gain the highest score.
