Shell Eco-marathon is without doubt one of the world’s main vitality effectivity competitors applications. College students are challenged to design, construct, and take a look at energy-efficient vehicles, pushing the boundaries of what’s technically attainable. College students from varied nations are challenged to design and construct ultra-energy-efficient vehicles, after which take them out on the monitor in competitors.
Yearly dozens of groups from varied universities and nations do take part on this flagship occasion. Universities of Pakistanis have been often collaborating with their gifted college students on this competitors for over 5 years.
This yr, SEM Asia 2020 has now been postponed that supplied a possibility as extra time to the chosen groups for designing successful vehicles for the following race.
It’s hoped that one of many three groups in Pakistan will shine and rise within the competitors once more with their progressive and fuel-efficient designed vehicles.
