The University of Hawai’i College of Engineering’s concrete canoe team is headed to Platteville, Wisconsin! …at least virtually anyway. UH earned a spot in the tournament for the first time since 1996 after being selected in the Wild Card drawing. Despite being the Wild Card, the team says they intend to summon all of their grit and determination to be the Ace of the tournament.
The UH Concrete Canoe team consists of: Chandelle Takahashi (captain), Ansen Nakasato (captain), Micah Lum (captain), Kay Hian Calpito, Marissa Chun, Darrian Cremer, Mallory Hataishi, Koby Kosaki, Bridget Lucey and Kassidy Mashiyama. The team is advised by Dr. Oceana Francis after Dr. Roger Babcock was selected to lead City and County of Honolulu’s Department of Facility Maintenance.
The competition runs from June 25-27, with team presentations on the second day between 4 am and 3 pm HST, streamed live on Facebook. More information can be found at https://studentconferences.asce.org/ccc2021.
