BTN LiveBIG: Minnesota freshmen compete on ice

BTN LiveBIG: Minnesota freshmen compete on ice

Cardboard. Plastic. Tape. Glue.

And ice.

As part of the University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering’s First-Year Experience, freshman engineering students were tasked with designing sleds using only cardboard, plastic, tape and glue. Once completed, 28 teams brought their creations to the Mariucci Arena to see which design worked best on the ice.

The teams competed for awards in innovation (design), distance and accuracy (the sled that traveled the furthest in a straight line).

Here’s a look back at the event.
