The How of Wow: Encapsulating a Moving Train

How Of Wow

Have you ever looked at something and asked, “How did they do that?” CKUA’s newest feature, “The How of Wow,” highlights marvels of innovation and technology that are all around us. The stuff Engineers and Geoscientists create can be beautiful, sometimes even iconic, but it has to work.

Structural Engineer Ian Washbrook will provide insight.
