The competition was open to all students and approximately 30 students participated in it. Two workshops were held beforehand on 19th and 20th February in order to equip students with basic knowledge and tips on building a balsa bridge. Different concepts related to physics were presented to students and the presentation was followed by a drafting, planning and brainstorming process.
Choi Lam Chun from 4B, Tam Kin Hei from 4B, and Chan Tsun To from 4A were the winners of the competition, with their balsa bridge having withstood the greatest amount of weight.The competition ended on a high note and was overall a successful event.

Aiming to attract more participants, we hope that students can have a better understanding about our society and their interest in STEM activities can be aroused.
