Creative Communication

I recently set a piece of coursework for the Structures 1 course I run asking students to , “…identify study and research the behaviour and design of an existing structure. Present your findings on a maximum of two sides of A4 or equivalent (e.g. 1 side of A3, or a short video or any other means of communication)..”  This resulted in many good submissions and analyses of structures ranging from park benches to cranes to bridges.  One highly creative video submission looked at a structure similar to about 7 billion others. Me!!  Among other things it appears I am about 1% shorter in the afternoon than in the evening.  I think this is  a great example of engineering communication – well done to Robert Cushworth, Hamish Mayall, Jordan Lowrey and Jake Wheeler

    Interesting! So they did the video as an extra? It reminds me of the Robbie Burns quote ‘O wad some Pow’r the giftie gie us
    To see oursels as ithers see us!’ well done Robert, Hamish, Jordan and Jake. Martin, you are obviously inspiring your students so well done!

    Thanks for the comment Therese. No, this was the submission. The brief asked for 2 sides of A4, or equivalent, so it was met. Interesting that “ithers” see me as so young!
