On Friday, March 4, 2011, 10 universities from across Ontario connected their Rube Goldberg Machines via internet and cell phone signals to ultimately link up with the lighting system at the CN Tower to light it up PURPLE for National Engineering Month. Purple is recognized as a representative colour of the engineering profession in Canada, and the tower remained purple for the evening to celebrate the achievements of engineers across Canada.
