Concrete Toboggan Team
Tobogganing down a snow-covered hill never goes out of style. The Queen’s Concrete Toboggan Team is a civil engineering-based design team that competes annually in the Great Northern Concrete Toboggan Race (GNCTR). The team is challenged to design and construct a toboggan with a running surface made from concrete, complete with steering and braking systems. Competitors are evaluated on their concrete mix and toboggan designs, speed, stopping distance, team spirit, technical presentation and technical report writing skills. The competition also addresses green issues with two environmental based awards. Being a student run event, industry sponsorship is crucial to the success of each team and the competition.
