Shell Eco Team competes at International Competition
The Shell Eco competed in their first Shell Eco-marathon Americas the weekend of April 23, 2016. It was six days of learning, working, frustration, pride, exhaustion, and facing new challenges.
The team represented ISU well by not only designing and building a vehicle in their first year, but by passing technical inspection quickly and placing 21st of 45 teams in their class!
