The AIChE Chem-E-Car Competition is looking for volunteers to conduct online safety reviews in advance of each competition. Each student team is required to submit an Engineering Documentation Package in advance of each competition. EDP Reviewers will review the EDP to ensure they have been completed correctly and that the safety rules of the competition have been followed, which helps keeps competitors, judges and bystanders safe.
