Vigilant Futures sponsors Concordia’s Women in Engineering K’NEX construction project
Vigilant Futures sponsored the construction of the space shuttle entirely out of K'NEX building pieces at Concordia University. The Women in Engineering team designed and managed the entire project.
Concordia University is celebrating National Engineering Week (March 1-5) and to commemorate the event, engineering students are building a giant structure entirely from K’NEX pieces, as they’ve done for the last several years. This year’s structure is the space shuttle and will be the biggest project in terms of size and the number of K’NEX pieces used to build the shuttle. The number: just over 166 000 K’NEX pieces! Vigilant Futures was a proud sponsor of the 2011 project.
