The Unizul Science Centre (USC) is a host site for the Bridge Building Competition that is run by the South African Institution of Civil Engineering. This annual competition is open to high school students grade 10-11. In the competition the students are tasked to design and construct a bridge out of given material. Points are awarded for the aesthetics of the bridge, its total mass and its strength - the strength of the bridge is tested by suspending weights from it until it breaks!
