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.
