The NC State American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) chapter hosted a field day event with UNC-Charlotte (UNCC)’s ASCE chapter on NC State’s Centennial Campus on October 29. The event included a concrete cornhole competition, pumpkin stacking, a tour of Fitts-Woolard Hall and an employer presentation from the event’s sponsor, ARCO Design/Build.
The field day was one of the chapter’s first major in-person events since the beginning of the COVID pandemic and was a great way to reestablish the chapter’s presence on campus while engaging in a friendly competition with UNCC’s chapter.
The activities exposed chapter members to engineering-related competitions such as concrete cornhole. Students had to design, build and cast a cornhole board using concrete. In the spirit of Halloween, students also participated in a pumpkin stacking competition that required them to use engineering concepts and calculations to stack up a tower of pumpkins.
