Transportation in the United States is expected to change radically in response to environmental constraints, fluctuating oil availability and economic factors. The transportation systems that emerge in the 21st century will be defined largely by the choices, skills and imagination of today's youth. As scientists and engineers, they will develop new vehicle and fuel technologies. As citizens, they will make decisions balancing mobility, environmental and economic needs.
The race tests the creative engineering skills of students as they gain hands-on experience in the automotive design process.
Teachers, if this is your first competition please view our B.A.T. Mobile teacher workshop presentation that explains how the competition operates, rules and how to build a car using the teacher kit provided at the workshop held in January 2013.
