Shell Eco-marathon: See how far your imagination can take you
Experience three days of inspiring fun for the whole family this spring
Experience innovation like never before at Shell Eco-marathon Americas at Cobo Center in Downtown Detroit, April 10-12, 2015, from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily. This free, multi-sensory experience features a variety of activities that are both exciting and educational for all ages! Join us for the festive opening ceremony on Friday, April 10 at 9 a.m. and then take an incredible, interactive journey through energy and mobility, today and tomorrow, including a look at the day in the life of someone living in Detroit in 2050.
Covering more than half-a-million square feet, this innovative experience features many hands-on activities including a Kinetic Energy Dance Floor where you provide the power, a mini-Shell Eco-marathon competition with salt water-powered cars that you build, plus much more. Get a sneak peek behind-the-scenes as the students ready their futuristic-looking vehicles for the ultimate energy efficiency challenge.
Cheer on more than 1,000 students from across the Americas as they push the limits of efficiency with their student designed, built and tested vehicles to see which team can drive the farthest distance using the least energy. Which teams will win? Will the current record holding team’s astonishing best of 3,587 miles per gallon be beat? There’s only one way to find out.
