MHS Engineering 2006-2007 Trophy Winning Class
“Best Math, Science, and Technology”
The Mishawaka High School’s Engineering class have been designing fuel efficient vehicles since 2000, competing in both High School and University events. The vehicle has a carbon fiber body and a total vehicle weight of 65-lbs. The class record is 972 miles-per-gallon.
The class provides engineering and technology students with a challenging design project that involves the development and construction of a single-person, fuel-efficient vehicle. Vehicles are powered by a small four-cycle engine. Students have the opportunity to set a world fuel economy record and increase public awareness of fuel economy. Engines are donated by Briggs & Stratton.
