Building the Ultra-Efficient Drive


You’d drive a car made with a lawn chair, a dismantled drill, a 3D printer and some recycled hockey sticks, right? Benjamin Esquirol and his buddies from Saskatchewan Polytechnic sure would ... in fact they did! Welcome to Shell Eco-marathon, where young people from around the world build and drive ultra-energy-efficient vehicles towards a more sustainable future.

This Great Big Story was made possible by Shell.

 

Competing against students from around the world, Saskatchewan Polytechnic finished second at the Shell Eco-marathon Drivers’ World Championship in London, England, July 8, 2018. Learn more about Sask Polytech's journey to the Shell Eco-marathon Drivers’ World Championship.
