Student designed and fabricated these zero emission cars as part of an exciting Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) program that lead to a team competition.

Students use SolidWorks to create 3D CAD models, 2D drawings, and photorealistic images for their presentation posters.  With SolidWorks Sustainability,  students calculate environmental factors.  Students use SolidWorks Simulation to apply physics and test their models under real-world conditions.

 DZC Imagine Learn Design Make Race

But DZC is more than just the race.  The event celebrates the spirit of these young eco-imagineers.
