AIChE's annual Chem-E-Car Competition® engages college students in designing and constructing a car powered by a chemical energy source, that will safely carry a specified load over a given distance and stop.
The competition, which involves multiple regional competitions and a final competition at the Annual Student conference, increases awareness of the chemical engineering discipline among the public, industry leaders, educators, and other students.
A team of chemical engineering students who have been given the task of developing a 'green' car to compete in the Chem-e-Car competition. The Chem-E-Car competition is held annually and challenges students to build model cars to travel an exact distance (15-30 m), carrying a specific amount of water (0-500 mL), both of which are announced an hour before the competition, forcing competitors to build designs with the ability to easily and quickly adapt to different conditions.
