Hillcrest students build bridges

DeVonna Bridges, Moriah Flowers, Rajah Matthews, Levon Moore and Marcellius Simon won Hillcrest High School’s mechanics and technology classes’ bridge contest.

The winning students at the Country Club Hills school built the most efficient bridges after the classes studied math and science, as well as mechanics and technology, to learn about the structure of bridges.

Bridge efficiency was determined by comparing the weight of the structure to the amount of weight it held before collapsing.
