Notice reference #: 1H9sqG

Aurecon believes that the engineering, science and technology industries must work together and lead efforts to make STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths subjects) more accessible and appealing to young students. The Aurecon Bridge Building Competition encourages students to unlock their potential by engaging with STEM early.

The competition is open to Y9–10 students in Auckland and Christchurch.

Entry for the Aurecon Bridge Building Competition is free, and using materials supplied by Aurecon, students are tasked with designing and constructing a model bridge using the construction guidelines provided. Judging days take place in September, and all competitors are invited to gather at venues across Australia and New Zealand where bridges are load tested and assessed for visual appeal, workmanship, creativity and functionality.
