School Visit Day

Wednesday, May 1, 2019

New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Loudon, NH

Each year middle school and high school students visit Formula Hybrid to see the variety of creative and technical challenges engineering students undertake. Student tours are guided by volunteers from the New England Section of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and other knowledgeable experts.

Students are able to:

  • See hybrid and electric race cars up close
  • Engage with university teams working on their vehicle
  • Ask engineers questions
  • Talk to corporate sponsors, like Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Ford, General Motors, and LG Chem Power, Inc. about their companies, and what professional engineers do
  • Learn about university engineering programs

To schedule a visit, contact Formula Hybrid at info@formula-hybrid.org
