Tech Concrete Canoe Team Sweeps Regionals
- Technical Paper: The team writes a professional quality design paper detailing the engineering that went into designing our concrete mix proportions, hull design, management techniques, testing procedures, and construction methods.
- Technical Presentation: A group of presenters summarize the Technical Paper into presentation which can be no longer than five minutes. The challenge is to condense an entire year of work into a concise and dynamic presentation.
- Races: Michigan Tech has traditionally excelled in the race category and this year was no exception. Tech racers, once again, captured all five races: two-person women's sprint, two-person men's sprint, two-person women's endurance, two-person men's endurance and a four-person co-ed sprint.
- Final Product: The canoe is displayed and judged for aesthetics and compliance with official rules of competition which detail dimensions and materials used in construction.
