Zak Termos, a Grade 3 student at Marlborough Public School spent an entire evening gluing Popsicle sticks and wooden skewers together to build a model of a suspension bridge.
His efforts paid off Wednesday when his project was chosen out of several other bridges as the winner of the design contest that involved the whole school.
“It’s really insane. I was really proud,” said Termos.
The eight-year-old’s structure was chosen by Karey Thatcher, the architectural project coordinator for the Windsor Detroit Bridge Authority.
Thatcher was invited to judge the student’s works as part of the school’s science, technology, engineering and math program.
“It’s actually quite aesthetically pleasing. It’s obviously functional as a bridge,” said Thatcher, referring to Termos’ span.
