Middle School Electric Car Competition

Ready, Set, Race!

Each year, up to 20 middle school teams compete for the titles of fastest car and best design in the Middle School Electric Car Competition.

 
Cars are judged on speed by competing in multiple heats. The cars with the best time will advance to the final heat. Cars are also evaluated on their overall creative design.

This competition is generously hosted at the corporate headquarters of CNH Industrial in Burr Ridge, Illinois. Through this partnership, teams get access to a real research and development design facility as well as opportunities to meet and discuss car design strategies with both CNH designers and engineers.
