Dec 4, 2014 –

The Southeast region for NM MESA was very well represented at the 2014 New Mexico Middle School Electric Car Challenge. The New Mexico Middle School Electric Car Challenge (formerly the NM Hydrogen Fuels Challenge) consists of a battery-powered model car race, design competition, as well as the option to compete in an oral presentation. Building a battery-powered car requires skills in both math and science. The primary goal of the competitions is to generate enthusiasm for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills at a crucial stage in the development of middle school students.
