  • What did you do today?
    • We did model fabrication and test our water tower today.
  • What did you learn today?
    • I learn that when force is being applied, the wood will bend, therefore we will have to add horizontal struts and triangles.
  • How do you feel about today’s activities?
    • I learn that teamwork and collaboration are needed so that we can finish it fast. I think that this can be applied in every group project we did.

Pre-camp (18 May 2016)



  • What sounds interesting about this project?
    • This project is about building the water tower that is well and efficient that withstood applied loads. It will need us to measure the size of its base and the weight of loads so that it will not fall. 
  • What do you think you can learn from this project?
    • I think that I can learn the factors that affect the water tower and also to learn about the relationship between the structure and the weight of the loads.
  • Any immediate questions regarding the project?
    • How would the environment we build our water tower affects how well and efficiently they withstood the applied loads?
