QFCT began competing in Shell’s North American Eco-Vehicle Marathon in the 2015-2016 school year. Last year the team took our eco-vehicle to the Shell Marathon for the first time, with a car outfitted with a Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) fuel cell. We placed first in the prototype – Fuel Cell power division.
This year, QFCT will be returning to the Shell Marathon with new additions to our original design. The car body will be built from carbon fiber, and a new fuel cell is being added to the system, featuring a control system designed by our Chemical sub-team. We hope to repeat our goal as division champions!
