We’re a group of curious and innovative students from all disciplines and majors at Cornell, making the impossible possible.

 
 

Mission

Every fall and winter, our team bands together to develop a brand new canoe engineered from concrete mixtures to compete in the spring ASCE Regional Concrete Canoe Competition. While we have posted strong results in recent years, our mission is to win the entire competition.
