Monday, November 27
Third Level, Hynes Convention Center
9 a.m - 12:00 noon (Car Assembly - Boylston Hallway)
1:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. (Competition - Ballroom B)
This exciting activity will offer students from local area high schools a hands-on, active learning experience about hydrogen (definitely, the fuel of the future), fuel cells, and car building from experts in these fields. Student teams will design and assemble their own hydrogen fuel-cell-powered model cars on site, and then take part in a little "friendly competition" to see whose car goes the fastest. In addition to "bragging rights," winners will receive trophies to proudly show their friends and display in their school showcase.
Stop by the Boylston Hallway throughout the day to watch the cars being assembled, and then come early to Ballroom B to get a good view of the mid-afternoon races and to cheer for your favorite!
In addition to MRS, this special activity is sponsored by General Motors, the Department of Energy, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and Energy Conversion Devices.
It is unclear how we can get involved. This article will be edited when that is clearer.
