A sticky situation

Engineering students Ellyn Ranz (center left) and Kara Sikorski get duct-taped to a column by Sam Wight (left) and Meghan Charochak in Lopata Gallery Feb. 20 as part of Engineering Week (EnWeek) rituals. The duct taping contest — a staple of EnWeek — requires students to design a system to maximize the effectiveness of the duct tape adhesive in order to suspend bodies as long as possible. Also that day, students enjoyed the weekly Cheap Lunch meal and events such as Relay for Life Penny Wars and EnWeek T-shirt sales. Free stickers were passed out to enhance the dull colors of engineers’ favorite gadget: the calculator.
