VictorE_PrizeVictor E. Bulldog is the live mascot of Fresno State and his handlers have challenged Fresno State students (any major) to design and build a collapsible platform/stage. The stage must allow Victor E. to sit and lay down, and elevate him, making it easier for people to take photos while standing by his side (especially the elderly). The stage also must be easily transportable.
