    Shell Eco-marathon is a unique global program dedicated to students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines to design and manufacture ultra-energy-efficient vehicles, and then compete with these vehicles on the race track.

    The program inspires thousands of students worldwide to work together in teams at their universities to put energy efficiency theories into practice, using breakthrough technologies, critical thinking, and innovative ideas.

    Each year brings new stories of human effort and technical excellence, such as teams pushing the boundaries of what is possible through two main competitions:

    The Mileage Challenge competition - competing to see who can complete the designated distance using the least amount of energy.

    The Drivers' World Championship - combining the proven energy efficiency of vehicles with drivers' strategies, skills, and speed to see who can cross the finish line first without running out of the small amount of energy they are allocated.
