Shell Eco-marathon Americas
Shell Eco-marathon is a unique global program for science, technology, engineering and math students to design and build ultra-energy-efficient cars, and then take them out on the track in competition.
Around the world the program inspires thousands of students to work collaboratively in their university and high school teams to put their theories of energy-efficiency to the test, using cutting-edge technology, critical thinking, and innovative ideas.
Every year brings new stories of human endeavour and technical excellence, as teams push the boundaries of what’s possible through two key competition types:
- The Mileage Challenge – who can make laps of the track using the least amount of energy.
- The Drivers’ World Championship – matching the proven energy-efficiency of the car with the strategy, skill and speed of the driver to see who crosses the finish line first, without running out of the tiny allocation of energy.
