Students Earn Accolades For Lacrosse Stick Design
School of Engineering Technologies
A team of former-Lethbridge College engineering design and drafting technology students say they have found the answer to building a better lacrosse stick.
The group received recognition from the Association of Science and Engineering Technology Professionals of Alberta (ASET) as one of the provincial finalists for the 2020 Capstone Project of the Year Award.
Normal lacrosse sticks may be composed of steel, aluminum, carbon fibre, and other materials, such as wood and titanium.
Seeing progress with technology gives new hope to the future of the sport.
On January 23, 2020 lift-off took place in the vicinity of the berm southeast of aquaculture at 10:30AM and two flight series commenced for 1 hour. The mission then moved to the coulee south of Tudor Estates and west of the first student residence.Two flight series commenced here for about 1.5 hours and the imagery gathered will be used for classroom lab demonstrations in Geomatics Engineering as well as a test data set for individuals evaluating drone software on the drone committee.
Environment and Climate Change Canada Donation
On January 13, 2020 Environment Canada and Climate Change Wildlife Enforcement Directorate (ECCC WED) donated a full skeleton mount of a Siberian tiger with it’s accompanying hide and skull. The tiger was domestically raised at St. Paul Silverspur Wildlife Ranch and when it passed the Ranch along with the following partners had the tiger mounted for educational use. The tiger skeleton was mounted by Royal Tyrrell Museum, the base was made by K&K Taxidermy and funding for the project came from BP, Alberta Sport, Recreation, Parks and Wildlife foundation and Alberta Community Development.
Part of the duties of ECCC WED is fulfilling Canada’s mandate under our commitment to the Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species (CITES). Although this specific tiger was not involved in trade its species is endangered and listed in CITES appendix 1 (the highest level of protection) and their trade is controlled. This tiger was donated to ECCC WED for the use of educating officers and the general public about CITES and the animals it protects.
Lethbridge College offers a diploma in natural resource compliance and a degree in conservation enforcement. ECCC WED decided to donate the tiger to the College so that its students and visiting public could continue to learn from the tiger.
