Ryerson engineering students light CN tower purple

The CN tower cast a purple hue over Toronto on Wednesday night. The Toronto landmark was lit by Ryerson Engineering Students as a part of National Engineering Month. The students, though, didn’t light the tower using traditional means. Instead, they used a Rube Goldberg machine, a chain reaction device, to hit a button representing the CN tower lighting switch. Ryerson […]

Engineering students’ chain reaction machine to light up the CN Tower

Ryerson engineering students unveiled a machine on Tuesday that will help light up the CN Tower through a series of chain reactions. It was built as part of an annual event, organized by the Engineering Student Societies’ Council of Ontario, to bring universities together to celebrate National Engineering Month. According to the ESSCO website, the Rube Goldberg relay is intended […]

Ryerson engineering students to light up CN Tower through chain reaction

Ryerson’s engineering students are participating in an Ontario-wide Rube Goldberg relay. A Rube Goldberg machine is a contraption that sets off a series of chain reactions to complete one task. Engineering students plan to light up the CN Tower purple on March 24 with their creation. The machine will be revealed on Tuesday at the Mattamy Athletic Centre. Read Peter […]

Oakham House societies on shaky foundation

Ryerson’s Oakham House Choir has not received as much funding as it needs this year. The choir, an Oakham House society, gets its funding from the Palin Foundation, a not-for-profit organization founded in 1976 to manage Oakham House and now the Student Campus Centre. The organization maintains the physical building and provides space and funding for student groups. Caryl Arundel, […]

Professor researches power-saving batteries for office buildings

  These aren’t your typical batteries. While a regular AA battery can power a remote control for a few months, the lithium polymer batteries David Xu, a Ryerson engineering professor, is researching could power about 1,000 homes for an hour. Xu is hoping he can use these shipping container-sized batteries to help supply power to office buildings and to solve one […]
