Model Bridge Building

Congratulations to the following Saints for their top 3 finishes in the Kansas Society of Professional Engineers Model Bridge Building Contest held virtually this year.

Current and past students from Mr. Hetzel's Drafting and Engineering classes participated.

Senior Rebeca Young finished first with a 3/32" basswood stick bridge weighing 11.4 grams holding 49,719 grams for a 4,361.3 ratio. This means her bridge held 4,361.3 times what it weighed! Outstanding job Rebeca!

Senior Luke Shaw finished 2nd with a 3905.4 ratio

Senior Mitchell Farrar finished 3rd with a 3638.8 ratio

Overall Saint Thomas Aquinas students finished in the top 31 spots with students participating from 5 area high schools.
