About the Supermileage Challenge (courtesy of MTEEA.net)
The objective of the competition is to provide Career Technical Education students and MTEEA Clubs with a challenging project that allows practical experience in design, fabrication, and testing. This is exactly what the STANDARDS FOR TECHNOLOGICAL LITERACY from the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association are all about!
In an effort to increase support for and promotion of Technology Education, public awareness in the area of fuel economy and student involvement, MTEEA will hold the Supermileage Challenge, a fuel economy competition for technology students every spring. Competing students and clubs will be challenged to build a one-person, fuel-efficient vehicle powered by a single cylinder four-stroke cycle engine. The 32nd annual competition will feature vehicles competing in Stock, Modified, E-85, Urban Concept and Plug in Electric classes.
