For the past five weeks, boys have been working with one of our esteemed old boys, Immanuel Gacis, to learn about structures and civil engineering. As part of this collaboration with BG&E Engineering, our iSTEM students completed a pilot crane building competition, with the goal being for their cranes to hold the greatest mass until structural failure. Each team was given a kit of materials, including 200 paddlepop sticks and 5m of nylon string. Motivated by the title of inaugural BG&E Engineering Challenge winners, teams were highly competitive, hiding their concept sketches from others to maintain an advantage.
