On Friday, February 15th our teams will display their cars at the USF Engineering Expo.
The USF Engineering Expo that is held every year in February, seeks to educate K-12 students on the importance of math, science, engineering and technology within their lives. The Expo (9:00am – 4:00pm) features hands on exhibits and shows that help encourage more students to pursue fields in science and math.
Our Electrathon Races will take place on Saturday, February 16th, line up for the first race will be at 9:45am and the green flag will start the one hour race at 10:00am. After the first race, our teams will have their cars on display in the pit area for guests to check out and ask questions about their car and Electrathon Racing. The line up for our second race will be at 12:45pm and the green flag will start the one hour race at 1:00pm.
The goal for our teams during the race is to conserve their battery power so that they last the entire one hour and still have the most number of completed laps in their class of cars.
ETO has three car class types at this time:
High School Class – students from various high schools that use approved types of batteries
