At every lab there will be a question posted on the wall that you must answer on your contest form (below), as well as a sticker that you must collect from the lab attendant. Once all the answers have been filled in, you can use the letters to solve the winning phrase. Prizes will be given out to the top 3 students who complete (or come closest to competing) the winning phrase and have collected the most lab stickers. All contest forms must be submitted to the MECH undergrad office (CEME 1214), or the MECH main office (CEME 2054) by the end of Imagine Day.
