John McEntyre Team Space
The John McEntyre Team Space (JMTS) is a collaborative space that provides precompetitive teams involved in large-scale projects with the space and infrastructure required to push technological and mechanical boundaries, promote the development of skills and expertise and strive for success.
The JMTS is located in the STEM Complex across from the Brunsfield Centre, which allows students to use the various machines located in the Centre as needed. These teams represent the University in diverse international competitions.
Design, build and launch an experimental sounding rocket to 10,000 ft! Experiment with rocket engines, parachute concepts, avionic systems, ignition mechanisms, control schemas for both engine thrust throttling and air-braking.
Design, develop and construct a single-seat racecar for the non-professional weekend autocross racer. Formula SAE strives to achieve the best overall design, construction, performance and cost.
This is the largest and oldest student engineering competition in Canada. Design and construct a metal frame toboggan, with a running surface made completely out of concrete, to race it down a steep snow-covered hill!
Collaborate. Build. Compete.

Using the space
- Clean up after yourself.
- Be courteous, helpful, and respectful to your peers.
- Each machine has material restrictions and training requirements that you will have to satisfy before using it. If in doubt, please ask.
- The room may be used for special events from time to time, respect these events and do not interrupt.
CEED Team Space Membership
All student teams in the Faculty of Engineering are encouraged to apply for CEED Team Space Membership.
Membership provides access to either the Sandbox or the JMTS, allowing your team to work within the community of students, professors, and industry members working to ensure uOttawa engineering teams succeed.
To be eligible for CEED Team Space Membership your team must consist of a majority of students from the Faculty of Engineering and must demonstrate a desire to participate in design competitions.
Opportunities for teams
By joining a team or creating a new one, you will be able to expand your knowledge beyond the classroom and get a practical hands-on experience that all employers want! You will also have an opportunity to network with mentors, industry and other students while having lots of fun!
