Student engineers win in February quiz

Sandeep Guntupalli, a master’s student in electrical and computer engineering, won yesterday’s DailyNews trivia quiz and the fabulous prize package pictured above.

One question tripped up most respondents – the 1900 Paris Olympics were the most recent Summer Games held during a non-leap year. Montreal hosted the event in 1976, a leap year. The Gregorian calendar now in use does not add a leap day to most end-of-century years, including 1900.

Restaurant to host fundraiser for engineering student design team

A team of Windsor engineering students engaged in designing and building a radio-controlled aircraft are partnering with a local chain restaurant to raise money for the project.

The 2012 SAE Aero Design team has arranged to receive a percentage of the dinner proceeds at Kelsey’s Tecumseh location on Monday, February 27. The team will receive 10 per cent of food sales between 6 and 11 p.m. at the restaurant, located at 9 Amy Croft Drive in Tecumseh.

Quiz to brighten winter days

For those hardy souls holding down the UWindsor fort during Study Week, DailyNews is offering a small measure of recompense: a chance to win some swag.

Up for grabs are two 50 mm square photo frames in bonded leather, courtesy of the special events manager in the Office of the President, and two 100 per cent silk scarves – ideal to ward off winter’s chill – donated by the Office of Public Affairs and Communications.
