A student engineering team from Cedarville University will compete in the 2015 Shell Eco-marathon in Detroit, Michigan, April 9-12. This is the first year the competition will be held in Detroit, as the teams race the streets alongside the Cobo Center.
The Shell Eco-marathon Americas is an event where college and high school students race ultra-energy-efficient vehicles. Leading up to the competition, students seek ways to solve current and future energy challenges. To introduce the public to the Eco-marathon, Shell invited Cedarville to the 2015 Detroit Auto Show in January to demonstrate “Urbie,” its Urban Concept car.
