St. Lawrence College students take on Queen’s and RMC at Feb Fest


St. Lawrence College Civil Engineering Technology students will compete against engineering students from Queen’s University and RMC at annual Feb Fest Snow Sculpture competition in Kingston's Confederation Park starting at noon on Thursday, February 6 until noon on February 7. Our students have twice beaten teams from Queen's University and RMC with their winning snow sculptures.

Student teams working in shifts of 10 people maximum, will take part in the 24 hour building competition. Three professional engineers will judge the entries based on criteria such as creativity, incorporation of engineering principles, presentation and team spirit/morale. The structures must be able to stand on their own, and be safe for children to play in and on.

Food will be provided for the all night effort by Chef Thomas Elia and the students in the Culinary program. Building materials were generously donated by Atkinson Home Building Centre and the faculty of the civil engineering program.

Come and see our students at work and enjoy a variety of family friendly events all week, from free skating to world-class skating performances, and more.
