Engineering Technology Competition

The Engineering Technology class competed in the highly competitive Kansas Society of Professional Engineers high school model bridge building contest in Olathe this past weekend.  Students constructed basswood bridges using kits and a set of requirements that were provided by KSPE.  Bridges were tested for load bearing capacity, which was then used to determine bridge efficiency (capacity in grams divided by the mass of the bridge). 


The Valley Falls students performed quite well given that this was there 1st competition.  Taryn Lee finished 7th overall with an efficiency of 3,048 gram load per gram of bridge mass.  All of our participants finished in the top half with Nathan Pickerell finishing 48th, Hannah Drinkard 62nd, and Caleb Hefty 76th.
