Outline of Competition
In this competition, students themselves organize a team to plan, design and produce a small formula-style racing car. However, the competition focuses on the overall activities surrounding object creation; in other words, not only the running performance, but also the car concept and design, as well as cost and other aspects of the vehicle. While creating their cars, students acquire a wide range of practical knowledge not limited to only machinery and electronics, and also strive to increase performance, reduce costs, and improve the marketability of their vehicle. This in turn sharpens their ability to self-identify and resolve problems－skills that are nowadays expected of young engineers and students. Leadership and teamwork among members is essential as well, and students gain valuable experience through object creation "MONO-ZUKURI" while also directly experiencing the magnificence and fun of creating objects.
