Weekly, Maine Edge Advance Regional Concrete Canoe Competition

The Weekly and The Maine Edge reported the University of Maine will participate in and host this year’s New England Regional Concrete Canoe Competition. More than 200 students from 11 New England universities, including UMaine, will subject their concrete canoe creations to judging on a variety of characteristics at UMaine’s Advanced Structures and Composites Center on Friday, April 24 and at Lake George Regional Park in Skowhegan on Saturday, April 25. The regional competition provides undergraduate students a chance to design and build using skills they learned through their civil engineering curriculum. The contest is a precursor for teams aiming to compete in the American Society of Civil Engineers’ National Concrete Canoe Competition to be held in June at Clemson University in South Carolina.
