April 23, 2018
Saturday, 5/5, 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Nold Athletic Complex
The Hydrogen Horizon Automotive Challenge (H2AC) is a science and engineering competition that gives high school students hands-on experience with automotive design and renewable energy technologies. Students will learn about renewable energy technology using a curriculum that encourages an interest in STEM fields.
Their assignment is to design and build a 1/10 scale RC race car powered by a hydrogen fuel cell, and race it in a rigorous, four-hour endurance test to see if their cars have what it takes to motor to the finish.
Fifty students representing eight high schools will compete for awards in Endurance, Vehicle Design, Vehicle Innovation, Energy Efficiency, and Pit Stop.
