Fridge Competition – Module 2

During the past nine weeks, the first-year Advanced Technology students have been working on building a cooling system that cools 0.33L of water as much as possible in half an hours. They had to make a design using the Stirling cycle and make a mathematical model to predict how well their system would work.

On the 25th of January, a competition was held to see which cooling system worked best. The Advanced Technology groups performed very well, but an Applied Physics group won in the end.
