Yes, you read that right. Students design, build and race a canoe made entirely of concrete!
The 2016 canoe, Whiskey River, was triumphant in the Mid Atlantic Region and competed at the National Concrete Canoe Competition in Texas. The 2015 canoe, Seabiscuit, won first place at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Competition and competed at the 2015 ASCE National Concrete Canoe Competition in South Carolina.
Our mission is to produce a rotorcraft that flies by solar power alone and carries a person.
- Completed a successful flight test this past summer!
- Created an interactive controller for the craft.
- Designed and tested a small model of the rotorcraft.
