Pre-Project Reflections

What sounds interesting about this project ?
This project would be about building of towers to store water, which would be interesting, considering it to be a science competition. Rarely would you hear of a science competition about water works out there, therefore this was the first project that stood out for me.

What do you think you can learn from this project?
Experience would be a process through this competition, therefore I hope to gain experience and learn more of the engineering part in this project.

Any immediate questions regarding the project?
Not at the moment

First Day Reflections (26 May, Tuesday)

What did you do today?
We finished our project structure with much time to spare today.

What did you learn today?
Leadership, Co-operation and also organisation. I say this because without these three components of teamwork, we would not have been able to finish the structure today.

How do you feel about today’s activities?
The project today was fun and engaging, as we were able to make an actual prototype of a water tower of our own design. Creativity was key in the process. We had to think out of the box to be able to finally agree on an idea. I am glad to say that my idea was chosen for the making of the water tower. However, there were some down sides of today. Despite the "blueprint" we had, we overestimated the amount of wood we were given and as a result, we were not able to build the water tower as expected. Overall, I felt very accomplished as our tower was able to withstand the weight of my team mate. I hope that tomorrow will be equally enriching with experience for me.

Second Day Reflections (27 May,Wednesday)

What did you do today?
Today, did not have many hands on activities for us. We basically created presentation slides and presented before we went home.

What did you learn today?
I learnt about the skill sets needed for a professional presentation. This was taught by Mr Tan, mentioning about the way us presenters should tackle questions asked by the audience.

How do you feel about today’s activities?
I felt that more activities could be lined up for us today. I hope that on the final day of this flagship programme, the presentations tomorrow will be good and also entertaining.
