Bama Blitz 2023 | Concrete Canoe Hull
Click the Give Now button above to help the College of Engineering raise $5,000 for this year's passion project, Concrete Canoe!
Concrete Canoe is a student organization that designs, builds and races a canoe made entirely from concrete. Though predominantly comprised of civil engineering majors, the group is accessible to any UA student.
Last year, the team finished in the top three of the regional competition for the first time in a decade. Securing a first-place finish would advance them to the National Symposium and shine a spotlight on Bama Engineering. One major improvement can help them reach this goal: a milled mold.
A milled, as opposed to a hand-built, mold will allow for more precise features in the finished canoe. With greater detail, the team predicts reduced drag, improved top speed and room for greater design creativity.
While a strong competition performance is important, the priority is providing a space for members to pursue their passion. Concrete Canoe helps members achieve this goal while demonstrating that through engineering anything is possible... even making rocks float!
