The objective of the competition is to provide Indiana high school students with a challenging and educational activity combining STEM content areas with practical experience in design, fabrication, and testing of a vehicle.
This project promotes the awarness of fuel economy by challenging students to build a one man, fuel-efficient vehicle powered by a single cylinder 4-stroke engine. The vehicles run a specific course while teams track their fuel consumption. The vehicle with the most miles per gallon wins.
