The Thomas Telford Engineering Challenge is intended for senior high school students who have some interest in engineering as a career option. This Challenge is in celebration of the world tour of the Scottish Diaspora Tapestry and the Scarborough, Ontario, exhibition in particular. Student team entries will be judged by a panel of Professional Engineers. In addition to the 8 files zipped here with V1#1 of “The Scots of Scarborough”, further learning activities for aspiring engineers are coming soon -- Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math, Diversity -- STEAM'D. All brought to you by the James McCowan Memorial Social History Initiative.
