In this video segment adapted from Pennsylvania College of Technology and WVIA, learn what it is like to take part in a collegiate automotive engineering competition. Teams design and construct rugged off-road vehicles and then go through four days of inspections and racing. Observe how a manufacturing and technology student uses technology to help build his team's vehicle. Learn about some of the core events of the competition and how the experience helps prepare students for the job market. This resource is useful for introducing components of Engineering Design (ETS) from the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) to grade 9-12 students.
