chem-o-wheel

Details : Objective: To test the design of the car with other competitors and to improve the efficiency and the design
About the Event: In this event the participants compete by building cars which solely run on chemical reactions. Here the cars do not run on mechanical principles. The participants are required to bring their pre-build cars to the event. Time would not be given for any team to build the car during the event.

chemology

Details : Objective: To test the basic concepts of chemistry and chemical engineering
