U of G Celebrates National Engineering Week
As part of National Engineering Week, University of Guelph undergraduate engineering students are holding activities both on and off campus March 3 to 6.
Saturday and Sunday, engineering students will be at the Stone Road Mall presenting a variety of hands-on activities for children. Sponsored by the Grand River chapter of Professional Engineers of Ontario, the free activities range from balloon rockets to demonstrations of mechanical arms.
The Gryphon Racing Team car will also be on hand for viewing. In 2004, the all-wheel-drive racing vehicle designed and built by U of G engineering students placed 17th overall at the Formula Society of Automotive Engineers competition in Michigan. The international event, which is the largest prototype competition in the world, drew 129 entries. The U of G car was the first successful all-wheel-drive entry in the competition.
