SLC wins again

2010-02-09
Once again, SLC Civil Engineering Technology students triumphed over teams from Queen's University and RMC at the Feb Fest Snow Sculpture competition in Kingston's Confederation Park.
 
Their winning sculpture was a bobsled run. Kids had an option to try the main run or a secondary, less challenging slope on the backside of the sculpture. Observations on Friday afternoon and evening were that the sculpture was a big hit with the kids.
The 24 hour building competition started at noon on Thursday, Feb. 4 and ended at noon on Friday, Feb. 5. Three professional engineers judged the entries based on criteria such as creativity, incorporation of engineering principles, presentation and team spirit/morale.
 
"The planning, teamwork, and spirit demonstrated by our Civil Engineering Technology team was tremendous," said Bob Tester, P.Eng., coordinator of the Civil Engineering Technology program. "I'm so proud of their effort."

Food for the team was provided by Chef Thomas Elia and the students in the Culinary program. Building materials were generously donated
by Atkinson Home Building Centre.
