ASCE Concrete Canoe
The Concrete Canoe team will be competing again this year! The team has decided on a mix design and is in the process of mold construction. The competition will be held on April 21, 2012 at the University of New Hampshire.
Merrimack’s Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineer (ASCE) students compete in the annual ASCE concrete canoe competition.
The competition challenges students to design and build canoes made of concrete that are strong yet lighter than water and then race them. The entries are graded based on the quality of the product, its engineering design, presentation and aesthetics as well as the race results.
This concrete canoe spent a few weeks in the Mendel Pond during spring semester. But why?
