Downtown Detroit

FREE Family Fun | Cobo Center | FREE Parking for 1st 700 cars on Saturday and Sunday

For the last two years, my son and I have attended the Shell Eco-Marathon Americas in Downtown Detroit. This event is an innovation challenge for future automotive engineers and scientists  in high school and college to push the limits of energy efficiency.

For the 3rd year in a row, the Shell Eco-marathon Americas will once again take place at Cobo Center, in the heart of Detroit this weekend, from April 27-30, 2017.

It's all about the cars...

At the heart of the event will be the Shell Eco-marathon student mileage challenge where more than 100 teams from all over the Americas design and build the most fuel efficient vehicles that the best bright young minds can imagine.

The teams then compete on a specially-designed track around Cobo Center to see just how far they can drive on the equivalent of one liter of fuel.

My son and I had a blast at last year's event

You can see cars of the future in action on the track outside of Cobo Center, learn how gravity, salt water and just stomping your feet can create energy and have conversations about the next bright energy idea.
