Another spectacular warm sunny morning in Lethbridge greeted us. We met for our breakfast at 7:30am
with Calvin Cycles being drawn on paper plates and Dr. Who dominating our breakfast conversation. It was off to another morning of public viewing (schools)
for our finalists and meetings for the delegates.
We met for lunch and then headed off to our Discovery Day sessions held at Lethbridge University. The favourites for Aaron, Brandan and Govind were trying to crack the codes at the Logic and Puzzles session, Aysar was impressed with his session on performative science and Theresa enjoyed seeing
Theresa made some great trades with the Aussies today as well.
The quote of the day has to be from Theresa after hearing Aaron explaining his animated version of the Calvin Cycle to Brandan, " I think rocket science must be easier than that. It reminds me of why I don't like plants!"

Length: 1,623.86 m (5,327.625 ft)
Height: 95.7 m (314.0 ft) above river bed
Materials: 12,400 tons of steel
Deck spans and lengths:
44 plate girder spans each of 20.4 m (66.93 ft)
22 plate girder spans each of 30.15 m (98.92 ft)
one riveted lattice-truss of 32.6 m (106.96 ft)
Rigid braced steel towers: total of 33
