Monday 24th July 2017 (part of the Chemeca 2017 Conference)

Chem-E-car competition

Monday 24 July
Venue: Melbourne Convention Centre, Ground floor

Chem-E Car is a fun, interactive and open-ended learning experience for senior high school and university students (separate categories). The competition is about working as a team to design a complex chemical process reaction to a tight schedule with a fixed budget. The effectiveness of the car is strongly dependent on its mechanical robustness and so success relies on more than theory alone.

The competition will test your ability to design a working chemical reactor that must operate under real conditions, and will require contestants to be flexible and fast thinking. Do you have what it takes?
