Five Engineering & Graphics design students from Alameda Community Learning Center (ACLC) shared a first-place prize for their cable-stayed bridge design at the Engineering Alliance for the Arts (EAA) competition held on April 26th in San Francisco.

Winnie Zhou, Megan Lam, Sandy Evsanaa, Henry Zhu and Zobeir Hamid, named their entry, a cable-stayed bridge with counter-balanced support towers and an S-curved deck , “Soaring High.”

“Bridges are a big deal in the Bay Area and the EAA celebrates this with their annual bridge design competition for high schools throughout region,” said Carlton Grizzle, engineering and math facilitator (teacher) at ACLC. “This competition stresses the important fusion between engineering and art. The kids love it because it’s a great opportunity to combine creativity with a technical subject.”

The annual EAA award event caps a ten-week Student Impact Project which introduces structural engineers and design professionals to the classroom to teach students in the design and construction of original to-scale model bridges with structural integrity. Students must use materials like foamboard, string, elastic cord, pins, glue, ping pong balls and construction paper.

The five ACLC team members each earned $100 and a commemorative plaque.
