Northern’s 2018 Eco Team was hand-picked by the school’s Department of Technology and our team leaders in preparation for the 2018 competition. Being the only Canadian high‐school team participating in the 2017 event, our team was very successful, encouraging us to register again for the 2018 competition. In collaboration with Northern’s Science and Technology department teachers, we hope to again represent and promote our community among many others from across North America while growing our science and technology-based skills. Northern Collegiate was the only Canadian high school participating in the event. Many of the college and university teams did not pass the many inspections to participate in the actual running of the car. All of the knowledge and materials required to do this was made possible through our teachers, sponsors, and local community coming together to support Northern Eco's success.
