To many students’ surprise, that task was accomplished faster than expected. Luckily, the organizers brought lots of water bottles to prevent dehydration of the team.

Only a few millimeters difference could have unpleasant consequences on the structure at a later point. However, so far everything looks good and we are working with a positive prognosis. During the next step, […]
