CSPUP’s boat was called “Kellogg’s Grrreatest” as a tribute to W.K. Kellogg. One female team member gave the presentation while on female team member answered the questions.
The team outlined the theme, hull design, analysis (safety factor of 1.5), and testing procedures (plates and cylinders). They outlined the steps taken to overcome the problems encountered during construction last year and presented the physical specifications of the boat.
The judges began by asking how did you compute the design and service loads? Why did you select a factor of safety of 1.5?
What is micro-silica and what does it do to contribute to the mix? Can you talk about your critical path and how it relates to the schedule? Is it necessary to consider the dynamic load during your analysis? Should impact loads be considered during the analysis? Why did you select a 0.75 in. thickness? How did you shape the keel area?
Why was the time line chosen before selecting the team management? Why were cases of higher draft taken into account? How did you make comparisons regarding time saving to procedures that were not actually carried out?
How many people built your canoe? What was the biggest unforeseen challenge seen during the project? How was the canoe supported during transport? How much money was raised for the project overall? What was your most significant learning experience?
