Details

The Walk on Water competition is held each year to highlight the field of engineering and its importance in society, including the fundamental scientific and engineering design principles that are the core foundation of all engineers.

Free. Competition open to high school and college students. General public welcome to final event.

Applications and rules available at Engineering web site.

Students from colleges and high schools design, construct, and pilot water shoes across the pool. They must consider three important design considerations; buoyancy, stability, and propulsion. The entire process requires applying the engineering design process and solving open-ended engineering problems.
