Seniors Shubho Sahdu (left) and Aaron Mosher (right) put a bit of body English on their airplanes during the accuracy portion of the paper airplane contest, one of many activities held during Engineering Week Feb. 20-25. The annual week, sponsored by the School of Engineering & Applied Science and designed to raise awareness of the profession, also included a scavenger “golden mouse” hunt throughout the engineering school, Nerf gun “Capture the Flag” in Lopata Gallery, the traditional pageant in the Danforth University Center where six male engineering students vie for the title “Mr. Engineering” by displaying their dance skills and other talents, and an evening talk by computer game developer Ernest Adams. Adams urged the students to design kinder, gentler games that discourage cyber-bullying and don’t allow experienced players to crush inexperienced ones.
