  • Students design and build the vehicle from aerodynamic, mechanical, and functional standpoints with the use of innovative materials, tools, and technology.
  • Students compete against around 30 teams in an international competition.
  • Tasked to generate financial support for their project and manage their educational priorities.
  • Students must function as a team to conceptualize, design, build, test, promote, and race within the limits of race rules.
