The GeoChallenge is a geotechnical engineering competition in which the teams construct a retaining wall made out of paper, designed to resist the most load (sand).  The teams compete in various competitions.  At the last GeoTech Conference in Florida, the KU team competed against other schools.  A few years ago, our team won in our region!  If you'd like to be a part of the team, contact Dr. Robert Parsons at
