In support of Qatar 2019 Sustainability Week, Engineers Australia Qatar Chapter together with Qatar Green Building Council and IKEA are pleased to host a Straw Building Competition.
Engineers Australia followers will know how much we love sustainable engineering challenges, with previous challenges including wood bridges and newspaper domes. The straw building competition will see participants build engineering towers made from recycled straws, promoting awareness of single-use plastics. This simple straw and tape tower building challenge will be a lot of fun, and is a great activity and opportunity for all age groups.
Build, interact, test and advance your engineering principals and skills as you network, have fun and build memories. Held at the IKEA Store at Doha Festival City (DFC), this event is free to attend and snacks and drinks will be provided. Teams will compete to construct the tallest and most sustainable tower with limited time and materials.
