The ASCE Concrete Canoe Competition is a nationwide competition that provides students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience while developing their project management and team skills. Every year, hundreds of universities come together to compete in designing, building, and racing a concrete canoe. These challenges serve to expand on students’ knowledge and creativity while demonstrating the versatility of concrete as a building material.
