Western Engineering’s Concrete Toboggan Team is heading to a galaxy far, far away – well, actually, the Big White Ski Resort in Kelowna, B.C. – for the 2015 Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race, Jan. 21-25. Co-captains and fourth-year Engineering students Mack Atkinson (Chemical) and Mike Nuttall (Civil) lead the Star Wars-themed team on its AT-AT-inspired sled. They will go head-to-head with 16 others colleges and universities across the country for top honours in design, presentation and racing ability. All concrete toboggans must weigh no more than 300 pounds and accommodate five riders.
