Cael is a fourth-year civil engineering student. He joined Concrete Canoe because he wanted to “get gritty” with concrete, learn how to design and work with it by hand, as well as connect with people in the engineering community. He is looking forward to facing the challenges that come with using a small percentage of general use (GU) cement, and helping facilitate the growth of our team. A couple interesting things about Cael is that he has double-jointed pinky toes, and he believes that salad dressing is overrated.
Junior Captain & Construction Lead
Kate is a fourth year biosystems engineering student. She decided to join Concrete Canoe because she has a passion for canoeing and is interested in learning about concrete. Kate is most looking forward to meeting new people and having the opportunity to work on construction projects with them. In her free time, Kate loves to read!
Finance & Sponsorship Lead
Josh is in his final year of civil engineering. He joined Concrete Canoe to learn how concrete can float (he used to believe that it couldn’t, but now he just can’t believe how much it costs!). He is most looking forward to solving problems that we face along the way, and getting to competition despite them all. One interesting thing about Josh is that he likes to ride motorcycles for fun!
Mix Design Lead
Robi is in his final year of civil engineering. He decided to join Concrete Canoe because he is interested in concrete, and gaining more experience in a team environment. He is most looking forward to going to competition in May. One interesting thing about Robi is that he went to an international science fair in Japan in high school!
Hull Design Lead
Tony is a third-year civil engineering student. He decided to join Concrete Canoe because he wanted to get involved in a student team to gain practical experience, build connections, and have fun during the entire process. He is most looking forward to the in-person competition and seeing the fruits of our labour. Let this be a fair warning not to get on Tony’s bad side, as he has spent 10 years practicing Tae Kwon Do!
Aesthetics and Tech Ex Lead
Taylor is a third-year civil engineering student. She joined Concrete Canoe because she wants to row our team to success at competition (it’s what she is most looking forward to)! One quirky thing about Taylor is that she can play the recorder while on a pogo stick.
Camryn is a fifth year biosystems engineering student. She joined Concrete Canoe because she was mystified by the thought of concrete floating and had to see if it was true. She is most looking forward to going to competition this year. Heads up for this interesting fact about Camryn – she has jumped out of a plane over 10 000 feet in the air!
Zoe is a fourth year civil engineering student. She decided to join Concrete Canoe because she wanted to learn how concrete can float, and she loves working in a team environment. She is most looking forward to casting the canoe as a team, and paddling at our second competition in May! One interesting thing about Zoe is that she can recite the alphabet backwards.
Team Trainer & Sustainability Officer
Darpan is a third-year civil engineering student. He joined Concrete Canoe because he is curious about how concrete can float, and how it is possible to turn it into a canoe. He is most looking forward to seeing how the design and composition of our canoe will be improved since last year. One scary thing about Darpan is that he’s never watched a horror movie.
