Concrete Canoe

About the Team

UBC Concrete Canoe is a 100% student run engineering design team. Every year, our team designs, builds and races a 20-foot long concrete canoe. We design an innovative concrete mix using advanced materials, and canoe hull that's both lightweight and durable. Students work in the lab to test out designs and build the final canoe. We bring the canoe to events across North America to compete against other teams.
