More than 50 Houston-area high school and college students will showcase their custom-built innovative cars, designed to push the boundaries of energy efficiency that will compete in Shell Eco-marathon Americas 2015 in April. The ceremony celebrates Houston's student teams who will showcase and discuss their journey to this year's competition.
The global competition challenges students to design, build, and test ultra-energy efficient vehicles to see who can go the farthest using the least amount of energy. Student teams have focused efforts on building functional vehicles called UrbanConcept and, for the first time, participants have incorporated advanced fuel types into their design, a true testament of STEM education in the Houston area.
In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be held at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
