1st March: Cardboard Fort vs Electric Couch!

Cardboard Forts and a whole lot more coming for Semester 1 this year. Welcome to the 2024 edition of the Maker Club!


Cardboard Forts III: Launch Edition!

Date: 1st March (1st Friday of S1)
Time: 6:30 PM - 8:45 PM

📦 A massive cardboard fort in a shiny new building. 🛋️ A couch, moving faster than any couch has moved before on university property. 💰 A tape salesperson, rich beyond belief.

Join us for an epic first-week adventure in making the biggest cardboard fort we can in two hours! We have nearly two kilometres of tape, an uncomfortable amount of cardboard, and we need your help!

Check out our fort's adversary - the GroundCouch:
