Some 20 ACS students, led by teachers Talar Partiyan and Debora Carreras headed on April 22 to the Notre Dame University for the Paper Plane Competition and the Spaghetti Bridge Competition.
After dividing themselves into the teams, the students started their day with a lecture on structures for the spaghetti bridge competitors and a lecture on aerodynamics for the paper airplane competition.
Students got to meet the world champion for aerobatics flight - “Avedis Tchamitchian (LEB), the winner of “Aerobatics” of the Red Bull Paper Wings World Final 2015.”
ACS students competed against about 70 other students from five different schools, producing impressive results, landing in first place for both longest flight time and longest flight distance, and in second place for both categories.
First place for longest flight time: The winning team of Taymour N., Hadi A. and Kareem H., received a prize of LL 750,000.
First place for longest flight distance: The winning team of Kareem D. and Danny E. grabbed a LL7 50,000 prize.

Second place for longest flight distance: The winners, Riad S. and Omar T., received a LL 250,000 prize.
“Ms. Carreras and I are very proud of our students achievements,” said Partiyan. “They were exemplary in their behavior and their sportsmanship skills.”
