DIDI 500

Design It! Build It! Test It! Race It! Sell It!

Competing in teams of four, students from area high schools design, build, test, race and market a rubber band powered car. The students have a designated amount in their budget for the project. Students test and tweak their cars before the final race in an effort to create a polished, marketable final product. Engineers from local manufacturing facilities are on hand. If a team wants to purchase the expertise of the engineer they can do so. Following the car race, students are given time to create a marketing pitch to be presented to a panel of judges. The winners are chose based on creativity, teamwork, design, presentation and care performance. The DIDI 500 was developed through a partnership of Dream It Do It Western New York and the ENACTUS Club at St. Bonaventure University.
