Two S&T design teams will test the principles of construction and engineering during competitions this week – one by hand-constructing a scale-model bridge as fast as possible and the other by racing a 250-pound concrete canoe.

Missouri S&T’s Steel Bridge and Concrete Canoe design teams will both compete against other regional universities at the 2019 American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Mid-Continent Student Conference. The conference will be held April 12-13 at the University of Oklahoma, located in Norman, Oklahoma.
