Details

The Walk on Water Competition is held each year to promote the field of engineering and its importance in society.

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.
