The Brunel Experience
Each programme presents a practical problem with examples rooted in the accomplishments of Isambard Kingdom Brunel,
in his time, one of the world's greatest engineers.
The Bristol University Library which houses Brunel's notes and many of his original designs, hosted a special course
for teams of 170 secondary school technology students from throughout England.
They were challenged with creating solutions to problems inspired by Brunel's work within specific guidelines for
materials, deadlines and costs.
The programmes alternate nicely between historical facts in documentary style, and the student projects.

2: A Watery Grave
The S.S. Great Britain, designed by Brunel was launched in 1843 and boasts a double first, she was the first iron steamship
to cross the Atlantic, and the first ship to make that trip using propellers.
She has been restored and can be seen today in dry-dock in Bristol.

On the second day of their course, the students are presented with the challenge of designing and building a boat
which can hold 1 person; float for ten metres across a pool, and have some means of retrieving a tin of baked beans
from one half metre below the surface.

The materials they have to build their boat are: a large piece of hardboard; some plastic tubs and plastic sheeting;
the lids of the tubs; a couple pieces of doweling of different thickness; drawing pins, two knitting needles; some braising rods;
some elastic bands; wire clothes hangers; a tin can; some bamboo cane; wooden pegs and two short pieces of wood.
They also have a variety of miscellaneous materials ranging from balloons to glue.
The students have three hours to complete their boat.
