What does it take to float your boat when your boat is a concrete canoe?

Concrete and floating don’t usually cooperate, but engineering students find a way.

College engineering students from around the Pacific Northwest converge on Saint Martin's University in Lacey for this year's American Society of Civil Engineers' Student Conference, highlighted by the concrete canoe races at Long Lake.

College engineering students from around the Pacific Northwest converge on Saint Martin's University in Lacey for this year's American Society of Civil Engineers' Student Conference, highlighted by the concrete canoe races at Long Lake.

The City of Lacey’s Long Lake Park was the site of a Concrete Canoe Competition Saturday.

A concrete canoe, you say? Doesn’t that defy logic?

The competition was part of the American Society of Civil Engineers 2019 Pacific Northwest Region Student Conference taking place at Saint Martin’s University in Lacey.

The competition featured University Engineering Teams from around the Pacific Northwest racing canoes made of concrete along 100-200 meters of the park’s lakefront.
