This coming Sunday, 25 May 2008, there is a first Singapore National Concrete Canoe Competition to be held at Lower Seletar Reservoir. The competition is organized by NTU and it is quite unique in the sense that the canoe is not made of normal fibreglass but in the form of concrete. To find out how it is possible to make the concrete canoe floats on water, do read the article attached.
One of my juniors currently doing IA in the company I am working now is taking part in the competition with his team members this coming Sunday. He has invited me to support him for the competition and I should be going down to take a look. Ü
For those of you who are interested, you can just pop by to support them. FOC one. Haha.Below are the detail and the Chinese article on the competition.
