TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Local students were off to the races on Tuesday night, with food!

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute hosted an Edible Car Contest.

 

 

It featured teams of students in 3rd through 6th grade.

They were tasked with creating cars...from food.

Then, they got to race their cars and calculate the average velocity of their vehicles.

The goal is to get kids excited about science, technology, engineering, and math.

The edible cars were part of the first "Exploring Engineering" program of the school.
