Club Description

The Chem-E-Car team is a student-run group at Oregon State University. The purpose of Chem-E-Car is to collaboratively build a car that starts and stops with chemical reactions. The car includes or has included chemical and biological reactions, electrical connections, and a mechanical chassis and drive train, meaning ALL engineering majors are welcome. Our meetings consist of brainstorming ideas, troubleshooting problems, and generally having a good time growing together. We compete in regional and national competitions that are orchestrated by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE). This fall we will be competing in a virtual competition for regionals and, if everything goes well, will compete again a few weeks later at the virtual competition for nationals. We are taking every precaution to keep team members safe when we meet, including but not limited to using social distancing, limiting team members in the lab, wearing masks, and sanitizing the lab after each use. As a new member you will be involved in the Research and Development team working together to develop ideas for future cars. Our goal is to have a plethora of great ideas to start from for future cars.
