2018 ACI Student ‘Concrete Bowling Ball’ Competition in Salt Lake City

Winners of the 2018 ACI Concrete Bowling Ball Competition

 A team of students from BCIT participated in the 2018 ACI Student ‘Concrete Bowling Ball’ Competition in Salt Lake City. The team flew to the competition on a Friday, participated on Sunday, and received notification today during the student luncheon, that they finished FIRST in not just one but BOTH categories (Analysis and Design) the balls were judged in. There are typically around 60 teams from Civil Engineering departments around the world (including some of the best in North and South America) that participate in this competition, and it is not very common for a team to place first in BOTH categories. It is certainly a first for BCIT, and something these students can be proud of. All of the students who participated from BCIT were 1st and 2nd year students, and they placed better then more senior teams comprised of 3rd and 4th year students.

Congratulaitons to the winning team consisting of Loisa, Sasha, Michelle, Kayla, Mandy, Erin, Brandon and Josh.
