Back at university, I absolutely loved the competitions and challenges that would go on in the School of Engineering. They covered everything from building the strongest box-wing to air powered vehicles. It was also about the same time I was completely and utterly addicted to the British TV show âScrapheap challengeâ - each episode, two teams were unleashed on a junkyard and given ten hours to build something awesome. They had episodes covering everything from hovercraft to fire boats and aircraft - built from scrap. Fast forward to today, and we now have â[Unchained Reaction] (http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=unchained+reaction&oq=unchained+reaction&gs_l=youtube.3..0l10.102223.104877.0.105188.8.131.52.184.108.40.2067.1796.6j7j2.15.0âŚ0.0âŚ1ac.1.qj-CJkbADnY)â where two teams pit their creativity and ability to build stuff against one another.
