Concrete Canoe

Who we are:

As part of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) student chapter at Iowa State University, the Concrete Canoe team designs, builds and races a canoe made entirely out of concrete. Each year, college teams from across the U.S. compete to participate in the ASCE National Concrete Canoe Competition. Before qualifying as a participant in the national competition, teams must first win their regional competition. During competition, teams will present their final product, complete a swamp test, and race their canoe. Each year a new set of rules and regulations are provided, and the team works to create the best canoe possible. The team meets in the AMSL warehouse at 7pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

This year, Iowa State will be the host of the annual Concrete Canoe competition as part of the Mid-America Symposium! This will be an exciting event for our chapter and for the visiting chapters.
