JGHS student Ben Farina recently competed in the Brookhaven National Labs Annual Bridge Competition and received the Aesthetic Award for his design!

Ben, along with 26 other classmates, qualified for the competition earlier in 2019. Upon qualification, each student immediately went to work researching bridge designs. After settling on a design, students turned their ideas into sketches, sketches into digital copies, and then the digital copies into physical bridges. Ben’s bridge design in particular was deemed the most aesthetically pleasing at the competition, and was awarded a plaque from Brookhaven National Lab.

While over 50 students from nine schools qualified to participate in this competition, 27 students of those students were from John H. Glenn.
