International rubber band-powered race car competition showcases design ingenuity, triumph over failure plus other skills crucial to success in a global, creative economy.

The annual Formula-E race ritual ("E" for "elastic") provides corporate and student teams with valuable experience in product development, engineering, team building and fabrication while pushing their ability to find solutions under pressure, recover from failure and ultimately win the big race!

This year, participating teams include students from Graduate Industrial Design, Transportation Design and Product Design alongside entrants from Autonomous University of Baja California Sur, Axial Racing, Honda Motor Co., Mattel, Mt. SAC (San Antonio College) and Pasadena City College, as well as four teams traveling all the way from China.
