On April 14th, 2018 a number of Wildflower students from the Creston and Nelson campuses participated in the 2018 popsicle bridge building competition. Using a bridge-building kit that includes 100 popsicle sticks and glue, children, youth and adults craft bridges that they hope can withstand the most force during a load-testing competition. The Popsicle Bridge Building Contest is hosted by the Engineers and Geoscientists of BC West Kootenay Branch at the West Kootenay & Boundary Regional Science Fair.
Students from Creston Wildflower participated along with students from grades 2-8 from Nelson Wildflower. Congratulations to all those students who participated, placed (Griff, Locke, and Liam placing in the top 3 for their age groups! Way to go!) and walked home with a draw prize. We are proud of you all!
