Shell Eco-marathon challenges students to build, design and test the most energy-efficient vehicles in competitions held annually in Europe, the Americas and Asia.

This innovation competition pushes future scientists and engineers to travel the farthest distance using the least amount of energy.

From March 29 to April 1, students and their fuel-efficient vehicles will navigate the streets of downtown Houston and strive to break the astounding 2,564.8 miles per gallon achieved in 2011 by Quebec’s Université Laval team, which will compete again this year.
