Reflection: Hong Dominic

  • What sounds interesting about this project?
The idea of building a water tower sounds interesting, especially when it is for a competition. I always like building stuff especially towers so when i saw this project title, I found it interesting.

  • What do you think you can learn from this project?
I think I can learn how and in what design is the best to make the water tower stable and how to build one successfully

  • Any immediate questions regarding the project?
How does thin metal stands support a huge water tank? What is the reason for the water tank to be in the air?

What did I do today.
Today we build an water tower using three balsa wood sticks, glue and our water tower could withstand 10 kg

What did I learn today
I learn the different ways that a failure could occur and how do we prevent/reduce that from happening. I also learnt to predict what might happen by looking and analysing the water tower model.

How do you feel about today's activity
I feel happy with our progress today as we were kind of in trouble when the heigh of our tower did not met the requirements however, our team get together and brainstorm and we manage to come out with a successful tower that could withstand 10 kg++ and it was definitely fufilling
