Chaparral High School Students Study Geometry using Concrete Canoe

In 2014, students at Chaparral High School (San Dimas, CA) spent three weeks designing a concrete canoe, using skills they had learned in geometry class to calculate the volume of geometric shapes, with geometry teacher Don Cartwright.

Philips Exeter Academy Builds Concrete Canoe to National Specifications

In 2011, Michael Carnivale, long time CNCCC member, started giving guidance to a team of high school students in the Engineering Club (MecExeter) at Philips Exeter Academy on building a concrete canoe. The students built a wooden mold to the specifications used for the U.S. National Concrete Canoe Competition and placed their concrete canoe over it.

Students carry their concrete canoe across campus after successfully performing a float test.

Philips Exeter Academy is a prep boarding high school in New Hampshire and their engineering club has over 30 active members ranging from 9th to 12th graders. The school offers over 450 courses in a variety of subject areas and is known for its unique method of teaching called the Harkness table.  With each class composed of a maximum of 13 students, classes are taught around an oval table where seminar style discussion is encouraged.

Romeo High School Launches 2010 Concrete Canoe

For the second year in a row, students at Romeo Engineering and Technology Center (RETC) located in Romeo, Michigan, have proven what appears to be impossible - design, build and float a canoe made of concrete.

The concrete canoe project at RETC grew to not only include Craig Bryant's Construction Trades and Evva Dossin's Drafting classes, but also Aleda Morr's Math-Science Math Theory and Alice Gryspeerd Biology classes. The concrete canoe is a cross-curricular project incorporating theories of science, math, design and construction all in one. Furthermore, students learned the value of teamwork and communication.
