Science, on tourne! competition recognizes two Dawson students
The national finals of the 25th edition of the Science, on tourne! science competition were held on May 6 at Cégep Garneau in Québec City with 36 CEGEP teams competing. The challenge was centred on the theme of Masquerade Ball, with the aim to build an autonomous engine that could pick up golf balls and place them in a container. Close to 400 people were on hand to watch the competition play out, with the team from Cégep de Trois-Rivières taking the top prize.
Two Dawson students were recognized for their individual achievement: Justin Simard, a student in Mechanical Engineering Technology, was awarded the ETS prize, which gives Justin $1,500 for tuition costs at the École de technologie supérieure, while Adrian Barraza-Borzone took the Prix de participation Hydro. Adrian is also a student in Mechanical Engineering. Congratulations to them both and to all the Science, on tourne! competitors.
