About the Road to Eco-marathon
This sub-section of the Great Energy Challenge Blog features the stories of high school and college students who have spent much of the past year focusing on the problem of building vehicles that use less fuel. They are participants in Shell* Eco-marathon, a competition on three continents to design, build, and drive the most fuel-efficient car.
