For our first presentation, we introduced ourselves and some engineering opportunities (like the Big Bang Fair which I recently found I was in the final for).
I also fortified the presentation with some news about Space X launching their new rocket, as well as the exciting collaboration of Toyota and Mazda. This could provide hybrid vehicles, with Mazda’s rotary engine as a range extender and the possibility to use cheaper batteries. The rotary engine is quiet, compact and has the ability to add more rotors. They have also combined this to make a driverless pod to deliver pizzas and the like! (Which Black Mirror ominously tweeted ‘ we know how this ends’ in response…)
Louis and Matt also presented an interesting engineering idea to maximise space on aeroplanes (but at what cost?), as well as updates on Trump’s wall!
