Alice Averley and Owen Thompson talk about their experience of taking part in Ryder’s annual design competition.
Every autumn, our new design assistants and designers compete in teams in our internal design competition. Held at Cooper’s Studios, this year’s design competition consisted of two challenges for which teams had to create innovative solutions, using both artistic flair and problem solving skills. The first challenge was to design and construct a device to hold three marbles airborne for the longest possible time when released from the second floor into the atrium. The second challenge involved the design and build of a 1m structure capable of supporting three potatoes and breaking at nine.
