ExxonMobil Sponsors Cheme Car Team
ExxonMobil has made a generous contribution of $3,000 to support the UMass Amherst chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) and its Chem-E-Car team, which is constructing a chemically powered model car to compete at the 2014 Northeast Regional AIChE Conference at MIT. Every year, a team of approximately 20 dedicated UMass chemical engineering undergraduate students competes in the AIChE-sponsored event. The Chem-E-Car Competition requires each team to build a self-propelled model car that, driven by a chemical reaction alone, travels a pre-set distance while carrying a pre-determined weight.
The sponsorship provided by ExxonMobil will go towards the cost of the materials and tools necessary to create the Chem-E-Car, such as the 3D printer that has allowed the team to produce optimal structural pieces for the chassis and reaction chamber.
“We are excited to represent ExxonMobil as our sponsor at this conference of nearly 300 people,” said AIChE board member Marianne Sleiman in a letter to the company, “and we hope to demonstrate to you that an investment in our chapter is an investment in a bright, determined team of chemical engineers at UMass Amherst.”
