The Stevenson team was invited to bring their winning electric car to the 2017 North American International Auto Show during the annual press preview week. . 

​Last May CTE students in the Design Engineering and Precision Machining classes competed against 25 other high school teams from across Michigan in the annual Square One Education Network Innovative Vehicle Design competition at the University of Michigan. 

​Students had to design, build, and test an electric powered vehicle and perform various races and present their design to a panel of judges. 

​The Stevenson team finished well by taking…

  • 1st Place in Engineering and Craftsmanship

  • 2nd Place in Ambassadorship Public Relations Presentation

  • 3rd Place on Road Course

  • 3rd Overall Performance

Students received a 2nd Place in the Ambassadorship Public Relations category for their work in reaching out to the community by visiting Lutz School for Work Experience in the Macomb Intermediate School District and presenting their vehicle and to over 100 students and over a dozen staff members. 

​The IVD team also created an Instagram page to promote their team, vehicle, and the Square One organization; you can see them at “Stevenson_ivd”.

Congratulations go out to the following students for their participation in the design and build of the vehicle and for attending the Innovative Vehicle Design contest at the University of Michigan.
