The winning team comprising of students Elizabeth Yeap Kye Lyn, Tan Chun Meng, Bryan Tay Kah Yuan and Chong Sze Yen.
It was a proud moment when two teams from DISTED’s Cambridge A-level programme emerged triumphant at the regional Bridge Building Competition organised by Monash University on April 12.

The students, led by their advisors Dr Low Khee Lam and Mr Teng Wei Jian, who competed in teams of four each were given the arduous challenge of constructing a firm and structurally-sound bridge using materials like newspaper, cellophane tape and glue.

Following a briefing given by Monash University’s civil engineering lecturer, the students proceeded to construct their bridges.

After five hours of meticulous planning and laborious building, the completed bridges were tested with the laws of physics.

The completed bridges were judged based on weight, symmetry and deformation of bridge after loading, as well as students’ presentation on their bridge design.

The winning team comprising of students Elizabeth Yeap Kye Lyn, Tan Chun Meng, Bryan Tay Kah Yuan and Chong Sze Yen, built the lightest bridge weighing 270g with a 6mm deflection withstanding a load of 1,800g.

The other team - Shahul Hameed bin Mujib Kamal, Ooi Wei Jie, Loh Kiang Oon and Ch’ng Le Hang, came in third with their bridge weighing 380g.

The champions, from left Elizabeth Yeap Kye Lyn, Tan Chun Meng, Bryan Tay Kah Yuan, and Chong Sze Yen will be accompanied by their advisor Mr Teng for the grand finals to be held at Monash University Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur on May 16.

A-level physics lecturer Dr Low was ecstatic over the double-win; and said that he hoped the competition exposed the students to a different style of learning and widened their understanding about engineering.
Student Chong Sze Yen, who aspires to be an engineer, said that good planning and team work contributed significantly to their win.

Her teammate, Brian Tay, concurred, “All our meticulous hard work in building and experimenting with different prototypes over the weekend paid off and we’re excited to be competing in the grand finals with the regional winners.”

Third placing, from left: Shahul Hameed bin Mujib Kamal, Ooi Wei Jie, Loh Kiang Oon, and Ch’ng Le Hang

All the best, students!
