Nelson Engineering is once again proud to sponsor The University of Wyoming Student Chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Canoe Competition.
The Student Chapter of ASCE is an organization for students majoring in Civil Engineering and related disciplines. Each year the University of Wyoming chapter competes at the Rocky Mountain Regional Conference and build a Concrete Canoe. Leslie Thornburg, a team member, sent us an update on March 9th with photos of their progress.
“Our theme this year is Vedauwoo.” (Vedauwoo is a recreational area outside of Laramie known for its unique granite rock formations; used for rock climbing, hiking, biking etc.) “Therefore, we designed our canoe to be a granite rock. We chose this theme as a result of a rule change this year. Instead of being able to paint our canoe with stain, we were required to only use pigment (integrally colored cement), which limited us in aesthetic options. We still have some work to do but it is coming together.”
