National Engineers Week was founded in 1951, but this year marks the first time Snow College has participated in celebrating, with several events throughout the week. The Engineering Club, with the help of other engineering students, hosted several activities throughout the week for all students. Many students were motivated to participate in hopes of winning one of the tablets that were given as prizes.
Monday: Spaghetti bridge-building contest.
Tuesday: Paper plane-making contest and egg drop.
Wednesday: Air rockets on the plaza.
Thursday: Trivia Crack, four tablets.
Brian Newbold, advisor of the Engineering Club, says ,“I think the engineering students had a lot of fun, and some students that weren’t in engineering jumped in and had a lot of fun too, so that was good.”
Newbold hopes that Engineering Week will continue to be held in the years to come. He said, “I hope so! Hopefully we’ve got the energy and time to make it happen.” In regards to the prizes, he said, “We got tablets donated to us this year which obviously got students excited and I don’t know what we’ll have for prizes next year, but we’ll find something.”
