Benefits of H2AC
Over the course of our program, students will work collaboratively, bringing their car from the design stages through prototyping and manufacture, as well as engaging with chemistry, physics, engineering, and math problems along the way. The program culminates in an evening of design judging and video presentations followed by a 6-hour endurance race day where students are in charge of everything from running and maintaining the car to planning, designing, and implementing solutions to the problems they encounter.
More from H2AC
In addition to learning to work together to complete a complex, long-term engineering project, students are exposed to many different technologies related to renewable energy through lab activities and reading materials. Pre- and post-event studies allow for comparison of student and teacher experiences and the ability to measure the impact and overall effects of the H2AC experience.
