Concrete Canoe

The concrete canoe competition focuses on a teams ability to design a lightweight concrete mix that can be made into a 4 person canoe. Points at conference are awarded for race performance, oral presentation, design paper, and final product. Our team splits the tasks between a fabrication group, a concrete mix group and a design paper group. Students in the different groups learn about lightweight aggregates, reinforcing concrete, curing concrete, construction techniques, structural analysis, project management, and effective communication.
