The University of Sheffield-STEM Project

雪菲爾大學STEM組競賽題目


Background

Scientists predict the world is going to experience more frequent natural disasters, including floods, tsunami, droughts, bush fires and hurricanes.

Taiwan is vulnerable to many natural hazards. Typhoon, earthquake, landslide, flood, and debris flow are the five main natural hazards affecting Taiwan. Typhoon and earthquake are the most serious and destructive hazards that cause huge damages and economic losses

The increasing frequency of extreme weather events and rising sea levels caused by global warming endanger Taiwan’s environment and survival. Taiwan’s average temperature in the past two years has been the highest in 100 years. Atypical heat waves have been causing water shortages, damaging the economy, threatening the people’s welfare, and restricting the generation of hydroelectric power. To make matters worse, sudden torrential rains from a tropical depression caused severe flooding across southern Taiwan, seriously impacting people’s lives and damaging infrastructure and property.

The Challenge

 Your challenge in this project is to Design and Build an Affordable, Sustainable Smart Home that is suitable for a family of 4, housing 2 adults and 2 children (aged 7 and 12).

Your solution should consider but not limited to:

  • The typical family behaviour patterns you would expect of such a household
  • The different ways that you could monitor behaviour and energy generation and usage within the household
  • Use of smart systems
  • Various types of natural disasters and climate change issues that impact Taiwan
  • Various types and cost of materials used to design and build your house and how they could be used to improve sustainability

Deliverables

 Qualifying Round: the presentation of the proposed design is limited to a 10-15 mins video presentation and should contain:

  • A short presentation summary of the Affordable, Sustainable Smart Home concept
  • Design and sketches of the home building plan showing sustainability technology and materials needed to build a house in Taiwan
  • A discussion of particular solutions that have been designed to meet the sustainability brief
  • Some comments on the cost considerations
  • Some comments on the safety considerations
  • A brief summary of / reflection on what you have learnt, what went well and how could you improve it for next time, including how did you perform as a group.
  • Presentation of Ideas

Final Round: Build a Model of your Affordable, Sustainable Smart Home and Present it live.

Lancaster University- Business Project

蘭卡斯特大學商業組競賽題目


Lancaster – Business Project

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic offers Universities an opportunity to build upon and improve campus sustainability. In particular, considering how they can create outdoor classroom environments given the worldwide changes in working conditions.

The Challenge

Your project should:

  • Design a practical business plan for sustainable change on Lancaster Campus from the aspects of building, energy, water or waste.
  • Elaborate your ideas. Provide other successful examples to support them.
  • Illustrate the business strategy and financial plan. e.g. budget distribution.
  • Think of the expected value and benefits that can bring to the university. e.g. boost the local industry or develop the business cooperation with other institutes.
  • Include short-term and long-term business developments and other details.

DO NOT emphasize on the process of how it changes, but FOCUS ON the business model you will use to this project.

Qualifying Round: The business plan (PPT) along with 10-minute video explaining your sustainable concept and how it will impact the University.
