Carmel Adventist College is continuing to give its students a competitive education. Recently, students competed in the Aurecon Bridge Building Challenge. We are very proud to say that the students won this STEM challenge, building the strongest bridge in WA!
Our students are always challenged to think of new creative ways to outsmart the opposition with this event and it was always going to be hard to live up to a previous win and a second place last year. However, we did it! We took out the win with a bridge that held 223kg. The win was made even sweeter when another of our teams won second place for their bridge, which held 192 kg. It was a brilliant effort by everyone involved.
The celebrations of this win were doubled by
another win in the same week at the WA
Secondary Schools Mountain–biking Competition.
College put together
a strong team and
knew that there
would be plenty of
solid competition to
beat, if we wanted
the number 1 spot.
The team won the
day with some
individual wins, as
well as team wins,
all combining for
the overall rights to
whether students “win” in the private sense of
achieving good academic results, or in the public
domain, such as bridge building or mountain bike
competitions, he was proud of all his students.
