  • Laura P. Ford
    Each year chemical engineering students at the University of Tulsa compete in the national Chem-E-Car competition for college students. It has been such a success at the collegiate level that a local high school competition was established. The goals of this competition were to build a small car powered by a chemical reaction and to control that reaction to a set distance which was only given just before the competition started.
