Having heard about a 300-tonne rocket ship crane ride that will be featured at Beakernight, Alec decided to share his technical drawings to ensure the crew at Crystal Services got it right!

Be sure to add The Toad Express to your bookmarks, and see you on Saturday, September 19 at Beakernight (4 blocks on 10 Ave SW) to see if Alec’s guidance was followed correctly!

Goes to show that creativity and innovation starts early, so full #STEAM ahead!

Lara Presber’s ingenuity challenge

A true Wonderment of Beakerhead 2014: Photo Recap is witnessing a model striding down the catwalk in an awe-inspiring dress.

In 2014, Beakerhead threw the gauntlet down to Lara Presber to create in two-hours a dress made out of aluminum foil. And if that wasn’t enough, it also had to be able to make its way down a catwalk without any Janet Jackson moments! Result? Creative success for Lara Presber!

Thanks again to Studio Presber and the Hudson Bay Company for being part of this creative ingenuity challenge.
