These photos are of the annual building-a-bridge competition for second-year engineering students that was held today. It's part of their assessment; they have to build a bridge with limited materials and see how many people they can get on it before it breaks. :) Quite entertaining to watch, as you may imagine, and a friend of mine was in it. In these particular photos, they got three on, which was probably the average. But I saw one group that managed about six or seven, I think. Not too bad really; you can see how flimsy-looking the materials are!

I have attended several of these team building exercises. They are fun and bring out the best or worse in a team.

Thanks for the nice comments on my blog.
