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.
