The ChemE Car is a great opportunity for undergraduate students to express their engineering prowess by building a chemically-powered car which can carry a load over a specific distance. The load and distance area vary on the day of competition, and results are judged on distance accuracy. The poster portion of the competition illustrates the team's understanding of their car's propulsion system and stopping mechanism.
The full competition rules can be found at http://www.aiche.org/Students/Conferences/chemecar.aspx.
Conference registration must be completed before entries are accepted!
Any questions regarding the competition or registration should be directed to Robin Kanatzer (email@example.com).
