Edible Car Contest for Kids
Illinois Valley Community College has hosted an Edible Car Contest for Kids, co-sponsored by the Starved Rock Associates for Vocational and Technical Education, since 2007.
Second-graders from area schools work in teams to build vehicles entirely from food items and compete for prizes. The contest is designed to give the students experience working in teams and to illustrate the creativity and fun of design and engineering. Members of the IVCC Leadership Team assist with the contest.
Several samples of their work are below.
Second-graders wait for contest results to be announced.
