National Engineers Week 2022 – Chattanooga Area Activities
The Green Prix Competition
The Green Prix is an electric car (e-car) competition. It provides hands-On STEM Learning for Students Ages 9 – 18. After receiving a box of parts and instructions, teams of students over the course of the school year will design, build and race electric power race cars. Students are assigned roles ranging from project manager, parts manager, marketing and public relations and drivers. They learn about how renewable energy can be used to charge their batteries and are encouraged to use recycled materials on the body of the car! The events are divided into three age groups: 9-11 years old, 12-14 years old and 15-18 years old.
The competition is sponsored by green|spaces.
