Exercises (4 Parts)
A. Build
B. Collection of Funds

Part A – The Building Project
Each team will be provided with a construction bay where they must build a wind propelled lifting apparatus which must lift weights one metre off the ground using equipment that will be provided. Each item of material has a cost attached.


  • You must operate a safe working area at all times
  • Your team must build their apparatus in the construction bay provided
  • Your project must be a self supporting structure
  • Only equipment provided can be used in the construction process
  • You are only charged for the equipment you use and may not go over budget
  • Your project will be tested only at the end of the event
  • Weights must touch the ground to begin with
  • Fund are not transferrable

Part B – Collection of Funds
This is a competitive event where all teams will be given an allocated time frame to earn as much money as possible in order to pay for their project. Each team will be working together over the duration of 75 minutes to complete approx 7 tasks.

Part C – Testing/Awards
On completion of the tasks the building projects will be costed and tested by a Dynamic Event Staff member. Each project will be given 1 minute of wind via an electric wind blower. Your weights must start in this ground and end up at least 1 metre in the air. Finally our examiner will measure each project for durability and reliability.

Awards: The Dynamic Events Team will chose the final project which will be put forward to go into production based on the product meeting the objectives and the strongest balance/profit.

This is an exhilarating and fun challenge which targets the full range of your teams resources as they tackle a myriad of interactive problems and tasks together.
