CSD Bridge Building Competition Champs

Spread the love

Clarkton School of Discovery competes yearly in the NC DOT Bridge Building competition. Our team of seventeen won the regional title in March, with a bridge constructed by CaraBeth Lewis and Darian Montgomery and went on to Raleigh to win the state title on April 28th, with a bridge constructed by Cate DeVane and Madison Taylor. At the state level, the team competed against four other regional winners from around the state. The winning bridge, constructed of balsa wood, held 24 lbs. of weight; more than any middle or high school bridge at the competition. Our team won $500 which will be used to help fund the team event for next year.

CSD Bridge Building Team members sign up for the class as an afternoon elective at the beginning of the year. This class meets during our 3rd nine weeks elective schedule. Clarkton School of Discovery prides itself on offering students a well-rounded selection of academic opportunities in our afternoon electives.
