UBC's School of Engineering hosts Great Northern competition
GNCTR is hosted by a different university each year. This year—from Jan. 21 to 25, 2015—UBC's School of Engineering hosts the event, bringing together about 420 engineering students from across Canada to Kelowna.
The competition tests each team’s ability to not only design and construct a winning race toboggan but test their ability to work in a team environment and show their school spirit. Race day on Jan. 24 takes place at Big White Ski Resort.
