SCSD teams from Van Duyn, ITC and Fowler were all recognized at the 2015 CNY Bridges Build 'Em & Bust 'Em competition, held at the MOST. Students in grades 4-12 built truss bridges that were tested by putting pressure on them until they broke. 
Congratulations to Van Duyn fifth graders Daniel Smith and Sevion Felton (The 2 Hardworkers) who placed fourth for students in grades 4-6! ITC's team "In God We Truss" (juniors Ahmed Althour, The Ngo and Keegan Foster) placed first for students in grades 9-12, while Fowler's team "Truss in the Force" (seniors Abshiro Abubeker, Jessie Chen and Ronald Rodriguez) placed fourth with a bridge that held over 47 pounds. ITC students Tran Ngo, Phuong Nguyen, Taquan Miller and Zau Nhkum also took part. Great work to all of our STEM-minded students on their participation!
