The Concrete Canoe Team is part of the University's American Society of Civil Engineers' (ASCE) student chapter. During the school year, the team designs and builds a concrete canoe in order to race it at the annual ASCE Regional Conference. The team actually designs the canoe, assembles the forms, and pours the concrete. The design aspects include defining the optimal width, length, and general shape for maneuverability and speed; creating a concrete mixture that is strong yet lightweight; determining reinforcement needs; and providing aesthetic appeal. The finished product must float when filled with water and is raced in competition. All interested students are welcome.
