Welcome to the "Water-Saving Christmas Tree Stand" engineering challenge. In a world increasingly aware of the importance of water conservation, this challenge invites you to innovate for sustainability. Your task is to design a Christmas tree stand that not only keeps the tree fresh longer but also does so by using water more efficiently.
We challenge you to invent a Christmas tree stand that minimizes water usage while ensuring that the tree remains fresh throughout the holiday season. Your design should balance functionality, water efficiency, and environmental sustainability.
Every holiday season, millions of homes enjoy the tradition of decorating a Christmas tree. However, keeping these trees fresh requires a significant amount of water – a precious and often scarce resource. Your invention could revolutionize how we enjoy this tradition, reducing water waste without diminishing the joy and beauty of the holiday season.
Submissions will be judged on their innovation in water conservation, effectiveness in maintaining tree freshness, use of sustainable materials, practicality for everyday use, and overall design aesthetics.
