After placing Top 10 in the nation for the second year in a row in 2010, we are excited to work on this year's canoe with your help! No experience necessary! Concrete Canoe is a nationally run competition that allows the top schools from all over the country build and race 20 foot canoes against each other. Canoe involves many different aspects from construction experience, management skills, concrete mix design, artistic ability, canoe paddling, artistic design, graphic design and technical writing skills. If you are interested in joining the Concrete Canoe Team, please contact UAKRONASCE@gmail.com, with a message about wanting to join the Canoe Team, and it will be passed on.

IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO JOIN!

This year, Pour Day  was Saturday, January 18th. A lot of students, faculty, alumni, and friends came to help out to help put the canoe together. The day was a big success and the canoe is now curing. It had to cure for a period of 21 days before it could be taken out of its mold.
