The Jolly Jumper provides a tangible demonstration of how carbon fibre reinforcing can improve the structural integrity of timber beams. Discover the genius behind some of UQ's first year Engineers and they explore gravity, structures and expansion.

Visit the exhibit on the 18th October and give it a go! 

Find out more about the Jolly Jumper Rig and it's origins
