The Ontario Engineering Competition was held in Waterloo this year and I was there to cover most of the action.  The Senior design competition wrapped up at 4:00am so it was a long night but floating around talking to the teams and getting a look at all of the designs as they were being built was fun.  The senior design competition involved building a device that would descend a mine shaft, extract a mineral and then bring the mineral back to the surface.  Here are some of the shots I took of the Senior Design Development process.  They get 8 hours to complete to design, build and create a presentation.  The discovery Channel’s Daily Planet crew was also making the rounds and were specifically following my friends from Queens University.  Laurentian University was the eventual winner (fitting since it is a very geological and rock oriented school) of the Senior Design Competition but Waterloo placed in almost every Category.  Top two teams Advance to the Canadian Engineering Competion being held in Toronto.
