All students applying to attend the Challenge are gifted and passionate about the STEM disciplines. Though not all students will be selected to participate, by completing the pre-work applicants take away new skills and knowledge they can't find anywhere else- learn engineering fundamentals like automotive electrical architecture, CANBUS, scripting, etc. with real-world practice. They develop a deeper connection between their classroom courses and the application of the content they are studying.
