Thirteen Trine University students took part in competitions at the annual American Institute of Chemical Engineers Student Conference, held Nov. 11-14 in Phoenix.

David Deniston, Bowling Green, was a member of Trine’s Chem-E-Car, which finished fourth in the event. In the Chem-E-Car competition, teams must build a car that starts and stops using only chemical reactions. Trine’s team had to make last-minute adjustments to their car, dubbed the “Rolling Thunder,” after discovering the chemicals they needed to power the vehicle had not arrived in Phoenix. The team was able to find a substitute for one of its battery chemicals, and ran experiments to determine another chemical that would provide a functional reaction. Once the team had the reaction, they had to determine the new speed of the car and best ratio of chemicals while addressing any possible safety concerns.
