Kicking Off the 2019-2020 Year: MECTT is Back!

It’s been a while, but the MECTT team is back! The sub-captains have been hard at work since the beginning of Summer to work on the team’s toboggan design, develop the team’s theme, as well as reaching out to corporate and community partners to help the team compete at GNCTR 2020 in Toronto!

So far the team has hosted our annual info session to kick off the year, as well as our annual Bottle Drive to help clean up the student neighborhood.

The team is currently accepting general members to participate in our theme and toboggan builds! Students of any year and stream are welcome join in this fantastic experiential learning opportunity. If you are a student reading this, please feel free to reach out through the contact information to get in touch with the team.

Please stay tuned for more news and developments as we get closer to ordering our materials and building our new toboggan and make sure to follow us on Social Media:

2019-2020 MECTT Sub-Captains

64 Days Until GNCTR 2018…

We’ve got just over 2 months until comp! The team has very busy cutting and prepping the metal for welding, pouring and testing concrete, and working on the techEx. Exams are coming up, but we’re busier than ever getting ready to take on whatever Waterloo can throw at us!
