Champs defend their bridge title

Bridge competition

YEAR 6 students from Thulimbah attended the annual Spaghetti Bridge competition at Stanthorpe State High School on Tuesday, September 4.

In 2017, Thulimbah students won the Strongest Bridge and Most Aesthetically Pleasing Bridge categories.

The 2018 group of Year 6 students were very keen to defend these titles.

With six Year 6 students this year, it was decided to create two teams, with both teams constructing bridges of the highest quality under the expert engineering guidance of Mrs B.

Students planned and constructed their bridges, even working in their lunch and play times to complete construction.

Come competition day, the bridge built by Brianna, Maggie and Alex was a very close second in the Most Aesthetically Pleasing Bridge competition.

The bridge constructed by Sheyenne, Caleb and Leia proved to be stronger than any other in the competition, taking out the Strongest Bridge and Most Efficient Bridge competitions.

Their bridge weighed in at grams and was able to hold a massive 9.4kg before the hook was pulled through.

In fact, the main part of the bridge actually remained intact. Thank you to Stanthorpe Stanthorpe State High School and Mr Tapscott for hosting this wonderful event and transition activity opportunity. Congratulations to all our Year 6 students and Mrs B for their excellent work in the 2018 Spaghetti Bridge competition.

Defending the Strongest Bridge title was a most impressive effort - well done.
