Dating back to 1975 this annual event brings together over 450+ engineering students from over 15+ universities and technical institutions across Canada and occasionally international schools as well!). From January 30 to February 3 2019, GNCTR will return to its founding province for the 45th annual GNCTR Competition. Competing will teams descend on Edmonton, Alberta to race their concrete toboggans and carry on the tradition of teamwork, sportsmanship, school spirit, and innovation. This competition allows students to showcase their technical knowledge of materials and structures and their ability to design and work with concrete. Students also build their project management skills to create a final product.
