AIChE is looking for volunteers to help support the 2019 AIChE Annual Student Conference Chem-E-Car Competition, which is taking place Saturday Nov 9– Sunday Nov 10 at the Hyatt Regency Orlando. AIChE will be hosting over 40 Chem-E-Car teams from Universities all around the world to participate in this event. This is a great opportunity to view some creative car designs and network with other Chemical Engineers.
What is the AIChE Chem-E-Car Competition?
AIChE's Chem-E-Car Competition® engages college students in designing and constructing a car powered by a chemical energy source, that will safely carry a specified load over a given distance and stop. The competition increases awareness of the chemical engineering discipline among the public, industry leaders, educators, and other students. Check out a video of a past Competition here.
Competition Schedule & Volunteer Descriptions
Chem-E-Car Safety Inspection & Poster Competition
Saturday November 9 | 3:30PM - 6:30PM
- Safety Reviewers will divide into teams and will receive a Safety Review Form, which will prompt questions to ask each Chem-E-Car Team about the potential safety hazards of their design. Safety Inspectors are asked to provide comments and look for any potential safety rule violations. If the volunteers notice a potential hazard, they will notify the lead Safety Coordinator of the competition, who will further investigate.
- Poster Competition Judges will divide into teams and will receive a poster competition rubric, which will prompt questions to ask each Chem-E-Car Team about the design. The Poster Competition is graded upon: (1) overall quality of the poster, (2)creativity and unique design features, (3) safety in the Chem-E-Car design and (4) team's ability to answer questions about the design and demonstrate a widespread knowledge of the reactions and calibration methods.
- Judges should hold a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering or similar discipline.
- Experience working in Process Safety is useful to participate as an On-Site Safety Inspector, but not required.
