Each year at the annual conference we try to participate in each of the competitions.  The two big effects for us here at USA are the Concrete Canoe and the Steel Bridge.

The concrete canoe competition challenges civil engineering students to develop a light and durable concrete design capable of floating in water even under negative buoyancy conditions. 

The steel bridge competition test the ability of civil engineering students to design the most efficient structure capable of withstanding heavy loads.
