Engineering students to contest Bronto-crane challenge
15 Oct 2020
University of the Sunshine Coast students have drawn inspiration from the prehistoric-themed cartoon, The Flintstones, to showcase their potential as future mechanical engineers.
Teams of students from the subject, Mechanical Design, have constructed cranes using only balsa wood, glue, and a ball of string for a “Bronto-crane challenge” to be held at USC’s Visualisation Studios from 9.30-11.30am on Friday 16 October.
The contest will be followed by a design exhibition of nature-inspired glasses stands from 12-2pm.
