Shell Eco-marathon in 2020 – the first all-virtual programme
In the wake of the pandemic and the cancellation of live track events in 2020, a refreshed virtual programme was launched to recognise the hard work and passion that Shell Eco-marathon teams put in every year, offering them new ways to participate despite not being able to get on the track.
From making some familiar competitions completely virtual, to launching new virtual learning opportunities with industry experts, and introducing brand new ways for teams to compete; the aim of the 2020 Shell Eco-marathon season was to inspire, challenge and provide students the chance to actively collaborate and learn, even if unable to get together as a team.
So, read on for the highlights of the 2020 virtual programme; and what’s coming up in the 2021 programme and how you can get involved.
