A team consisting of three learners of the Kimberley Boys’ High School recently won the regional leg of the Aqualibrium water competition of the South African Institution of Civil Engineering (Saice), hosted by the Diamond Pavilion Shopping Mall.

Guy Jansen, Thato Seipato and Tshiamo Shuping had to put their heads together to figure out how to distribute a quantity of water equally between three points on a grid using a network of pipes.

Teams were judged on how well they could achieve this task after a certain amount of testing.

These three outsmarted the other teams taking part in the competi­tion.

Among the competing teams were various teams from the Diamantveld High School, a school that had managed to win the national competition in both 2015 and 2016 and came second in 2013.

The trio of the Kimberley Boys’ High School have, by winning the regional leg, progressed to the national finals which will be held at the Sci-Bono Discovery Centre in Newtown, Johannesburg, on 28 July.
