30th ANNUAL SUPERMILEAGE CHALLENGE
May 14 and 15, 2018
October 12, 2017
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 30th annual competition will feature vehicles competing in Stock, Modified, E-85, Experimental and Plug in Electric classes.
Schools new to the competition are limited to one Stock Class entry their first year. Returning schools are recommended to limit their team to two vehicle entries for their second year and may compete in any of the five classes. Schools entering for the third time may enter three vehicles. Schools returning for a fourth year, or more, may enter four vehicles. Stock, Modified, Experimental, E-85 classes and Plug-in electric vehicles each compete in a separate class.
This competition is open to entries from Industrial Technology Education classes and student clubs from Minnesota schools. Advisors must be a current MTEEA member by February 28, 2018.
Supermileage Challenge has a Facebook page to assist in reminders and rules clarification and should be used as the primary method of communication on technical questions from students. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1004170469690898/
