SENG undergraduates battle it out with rafts made from everyday materials

Oct 12, 2013, Posted In: PMP, undergraduate, rafting competition

In this rafting competition organized by E2I, undergraduate students from across the School of Engineering took part in building and racing their rafts. Participants worked in teams of 4-7 to build a raft out of everyday materials like water jugs, pool noodles, nylon twine, and duct tape. The teams had one hour to design and build a floating raft that was also robust enough to support 1-2 team members as they paddled it in a water race. The winning team was No Name who completed the 50 metre race in just over three minutes! The members of No Name were: Wong Clement Yan-tsun; Wong Wing You; Pishun Tantivangphaisal; Chung Sao Jing Johann.
