Ben Kegley, Jonathan Cain and Brooke Washburn prep their Chem-E Car for a test run down a hallway. The car, which is entirely controlled by a series of chemical reactions, will be competing in a regional competition judging the accuracy of the distance it can travel with weight added to it. The car was designed by two teams of UTC engineering students — one team for the chassis and motor and another for the stopping mechanism.

Deep in the bowels of a building on the UTC campus, a team of eight engineering students is trying get "Scrappy," a chemically powered car, to move a measured distance and stop at a line of blue tape on the concrete floor.
