The 818 Project

Thanks to a super generous donation from our friends at Factory Five, in 2014 the

EVX Team built the 818, a biodiesel powered sports car capable of nearly 100 miles per gallon!

In teams, students and teachers worked together to redesign and build the car’s different systems and make modifications to the body.

In June, the team was invited to show off the car at the first White House Maker Faire,

where they met other young designers and engineers, celebrities Bill Nye and Will.I.Am, and President Obama himself!
