For Day 1 of the SST-NTU Flagship Camp, we were briefed on our project and the key concepts we had to understand in order to succeed. From this, each of us managed to successfully create a rough diagram of the water tower and compile all of our ideas to create a diagram which we could all agree on.
However, for the project, we were provided with limited materials so we had to be resourceful. We were also required to be very precise in our measurements so that no material would be wasted.
Thankfully, our calculations and measurements were precise leading to a very smooth process of constructing the water tower. In a nutshell, the day was very fulfilling and rewarding, especially when we completed our structure which managed to withstand 100N, definitely surpassing our expectations. It also made us realise that a simple wooden structure can actually support heavy weights if built correctly.
