Introducing the all-virtual alternative programme for the 2020 season.
While the global pandemic has meant the cancellation of all live events for the 2020 Shell Eco-marathon season, we have been working on a refreshed programme that will continue to recognise the hard work and passion that Shell Eco-marathon teams put in every year, and offer new ways to participate.
With some familiar competitions made completely virtual, to new virtual learning opportunities with industry experts, plus introducing brand new ways for teams to compete, we aim for Shell Eco-marathon to continue being a platform that inspires, challenges and provides students the chance to actively collaborate and learn in a virtual environment in 2020, even if unable to get together as a team.
So, read on to find out what we’ve been up to, what’s coming up and how you can get involved.
There is a story behind every Shell Eco-marathon car. The Off-Track Awards showcase the wide range of skills and talents that have gone into each Shell Eco-marathon project, recognising excellence and outstanding achievements teams have made off the track.Off-track Awards
Virtual Learning Sessions
This year we launched a series of Shell Eco-marathon Virtual Learning Sessions streamed live via YouTube. The sessions are a collaboration with our technology partners and enable students to participate, continue to learn and interact from the safety and comfort of their own homes.Virtual Learning Sessions
