The Supermileage Learning Event

22 February, 2013

It’s finally here! As part of the Shell Mini-challenges we are hosting a Learning Event on the last day of the month. Come out and learn about the Eco-marathon, meet the team, and learn some of the science behind Supermileage!

When: February 28, 2013 (Thursday)

Where: Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, just across from the Ike cafe

The event consists of 5 booths:

  1. Supermileage Intro/sign in – if we can gather the most signatures of all the Canadian Supermileage Teams we win!
  2. Shell Eco-Marathon information – What exactly is the Ec0-Marathon?
  3. Fuel Science – how engines work, and how we get the energy contained in gasoline
  4. Aerodynamics – the reasons behind our Aero shell designs
  5. Techniques for being more energy efficient in your own life – We’re all about efficiency and you could be too!

The winners of this event gets the cost of shipping their vehicle down to Houston paid for by Shell. Usually a large chunk of our budget has to be put towards shipping, so winning this challenge is a huge boon for the team. We look forward to seeing you at the Learning Centre next Thursday!
