Detroit Mercy's American Society of Civil Engineers Concrete Canoe Team designs, builds and races a concrete canoe (yes, it actually floats!) annually against other schools. The competition gives Civil Engineering students the opportunity to learn how to design and test concrete, work on a large-scale project within a strict schedule, and work as part of a team. A project of this size needs for funding, including the costs of travel and lodging for the competition. With your tax-deductible donation, our team can purchase the materials necessary to construct this year's canoe and compete in this year's conference.
