This past weekend I had the pleasure to accompany 30+ of my civil engineering students to Chattanooga to compete against 27 other engineering schools and 900 students in the annual southeastern ASCE student contest. Great fun. if you don’t believe concrete canoes can float, just try racing them! And if you think kids can’t make very cool, very stable and very strong bridges, you missed out, along with another dozen or more contests that challenge their skills, communication and cooperation. I will post some photos but congrats to all the participants. And especially congrats to our FAU students who competed well, showed themselves well and learned a lot in Tennessee!
