Application Deadline: November 16th 2015

Shell Eco-marathon challenges student teams from around the world to design, build and test ultra energy-efficient vehicles. With annual events first in the Americas, then Europe and Asia, the winners are the teams that go the furthest using the least amount of energy. The events spark debate about the future of mobility and inspire young engineers to push the boundaries of fuel efficiency.

Registration is now open for high school and university students from across the Americas to showcase their passion for technological innovation and energy efficiency on the streets of downtown Detroit. The challenge: design and build a vehicle that goes the farthest on the least amount of energy. Student teams are aiming to beat the current Americas record of 3,587 miles per gallon equivalent.

Interested educators, students and teams are invited to sign-up for the Shell Eco-marathon 2016 mileage challenge until November 16, 2015, and help push the boundaries of energy efficiency.
