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 competition is to generate enthusiasm for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills at a crucial stage in the development of middle school students.

 
  • Teams are provided everything needed to power a battery model car, including design materials to construct the car - chassis, wheels, gears, etc.
  • Entrants will be limited to the FIRST 50 teams that register by the deadline of November 6, 2017.
  • Teams may be made up of a maximum of 6 students.
  • Each school can register up to THREE teams.
  • Free teacher workshop available - registration for the workshop is through the Teacher/Coach Workshop link above.
  • Coaches will receive a stipend to assist with expenses.

    Coaching Stipends:

    • $50 within a 60 mile radius of Albuquerque
