What is Chem-E-Car?
Sponsored by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, or AIChE, the Chem-E-Car competition is a bi-annual event which tests the rigor, teamwork and creativity of individual AIChE chapters. The goals of the competition are to design, present and implement a chemically-powered, shoe-box sized “chem-e-car.” The car must be able to travel a variable distance and support a variable weight. University teams receive prizes for presentation, safety and car methodology and performance.
Finally after compiling many hours of efforts of designing and creating a chemical powered cart, members will then put efforts to the test in the bi-annual AIChE Chem-E-Car competition. This competition is a great way to meet other Chem-E car clubs from other schools and learn about their cheme car.
