We went to Sale waterpark to test if our prototype models floated. They did!

On Wednesday we were joined by Andy Cameron, a Civil Engineer from the Environment Agency who gave us a talk on the increasing threat of floods to the UK. He then came round to each group and gave advice and suggested improvements for our designs.

We were then grouped into fours and given some time to discuss possible designs and floatation strategies for our designs, before presenting those to the entire group.

We have been asked to design a floating shelter to be used in emergency flood situations. We will then prototype, model and finally test our models to see if they float.
