Invitation for Secondary Schools Bridge Demonstration Competition 2022

Invitation for Secondary Schools Bridge Demonstration Competition 2022

          On behalf of The Civil and Environmental Engineering Students’ Society, HKUSTSU, we would like to invite your school to participate in the Secondary Schools Bridge Demonstration Competition 2022 (SSC). 

          SSC is a competition in which participants are required to build a scale model of a truss bridge with the materials provided. The bridge will then be tested by running a loaded trolley across it. Through the competition, we aim to provide initiatives for secondary school students to know more about the design and working principle of bridges. It also serves as an excellent opportunity for your students in converting their science knowledge into real-life engineering application. The competition has already successfully been held for 10 years and we hope to carry on the tradition and make the competition this year into another successful one. 

          Each participating school should form a team with at least 5 students or at most 7 students, and a teacher supervisor. The maximum number of participating schools is 10. If there are more than 10 schools applying for the competition, the participating schools will be selected by lucky draw. Successful applicants will receive a confirmation email and the list of participating schools will be announced on the competition website, http://ceesshkustsu.wixsite.com/ssc2022. Each participating school will have to pay a deposit of $500 which will be fully refunded after the corresponding team has completed the competition. For the award, each participating school will receive a certificate of participation and have a chance to be awarded up to $1000 coupons.

          The briefing session of the competition will be held on 27th November, 2021. The Heat will be in mid-February, 2022 and the Final will be in early-March, 2022.

          If you are interested in participating in the competition, please fill in the attached application form and submit by emailing to su_civil@ust.hk. The deadline for the application is on 26th November, 2021. Please be noted that walk-in application is NOT accepted. Thank you for your kind attention and we hope to see your application to the competition.
