On November 12th, 2016, Van Duyn Elementary 5th grade students competed in the 17th annual Central New York Bridges Build ‘Em & Bust ‘Em bridge-building competition at the MOST. Van Duyn had several teams of 5th graders enter the bridge-building contest. They worked hard to design a strong, sturdy bridge and then on November 12th they tested their designs.

The Van Duynamites, a 5th grade team, won 3rd place in their category (grades 4-6) and were the #1 team in the Syracuse City School District in their category. At Van Duyn we are proud of these ‘Van-tastic’ students and their amazing accomplishments! Great job to all of the Van Duyn teams that competed this year!
