Each year, our chemical engineering students at The University of Tulsa compete nationally in a “Chem-E-Car” competition for college students. It has been such a success with our students that we host our own variation for Tulsa-area high school students. The goals of the competition are to build a small toy car powered by a chemical reaction and to control that chemical reaction so the car travels the required distance which is announced shortly before the competition.
