A team of engineering and science students from Louisiana Tech University is preparing to compete, again, in the Shell Eco-marathon Americas.  It’s being held in Houston April 25-27.  

Next year, the competition moves to Detroit.  More than 1,000 university and high school students from across North America are expected to compete.

This year, the Tech team is taking two vehicles, both of which will compete in the Urban Concept category.  They’re taking last year’s “Tech Double X” and a new student-designed vehicle they’re calling “Diesel Dawg.”

The competition is all about fuel-efficiency and Tech teams in the past have done quite well with their entries.  Cash prizes are awarded for eco design, safety, and technical innovation.  the competition is designed to encourage the world’s next generation of engineers and scientists to consider new, sustainable ways to meet the rising demand for energy.
