The Walk on Water Competition is held every year to promote the field of engineering and its importance in society. More specifically, the goal of the event is to promote fundamental scientific and engineering design principles that are the core foundation of all engineers. Students are assigned the task of designing, constructing and piloting water shoes across the pool. They must consider three important design considerations: buoyancy, stability and propulsion. The entire process will allow one to gain experience at applying the engineering design process and ultimately, to solve open-ended engineering problems.
