Mini Innovative Vehicle Design Challenge

Challenging students to re-engineer an electric 1/10th scale RC vehicle. 

Square One’s Mini Innovative Vehicle Design (IVD) Racing Challenge requires teams of high school students to re-engineer an electric 1/10th scale RC vehicle, featuring an innovative component that sets it apart from the rest. Mini IVD Teams conduct a series of baseline performance tests, then collect and analyze data as they modify vehicle components including gear ratios, shock fluids, tires, and more.

Student teams compete at the annual Innovative Vehicle Design Challenge Day in performance, engineering and craftsmanship, design innovation, ambassadorship, and presentation categories.  

Join the Challenge.

The registration fee for this project includes the vehicle, a full day of professional development for 1-2 teachers per school, five high school student team members, innovation budget, project parameters, and competition events. Square One will provide fundraising ideas and letters of support. The program launches with professional development in early October. Payment is due in January.
