The Year 1 undergraduates in the School of Engineering started their studies this week with a group exercise to fabricate and build a Pratt truss bridge capable of carrying around 8 kg out of cardboard manila folders. I’m supporting Dr Richard Potter in delivering this longstanding (haha) introductory activity. Good to meet the new undergraduates, seem like a nice bunch :-).
Strength testing for the structural members tomorrow, then construction and testing the bridges later this week.
