STEM THE AIR
Pollen season seems like it’s always upon us! As a result, Volvo is equipping new vehicles with an air purification that can remove 99.9% of grass, tree, and weed pollen allergens from incoming air. Cleaner air gives personal health benefits and a boost in concentration.

STEM THE SHIP
The Port stacks tons of weight on top of ships that must stay afloat. Regardless of the size of the ship, containers must be loaded so they will not tip over. Weight must be added and distributed so the ship wont lean. How would you load the ship with 60 containers that can only be stacked 3 high and 4 wide?
