To participate in the competition, students must have first successfully completed BWSI’s miniRACECAR course which they can attend online at no charge between November 2021 and June 2022. The miniRACECAR course is offered in English. Students will receive a certificate from BWSI evidencing their having completed the course, as will the teachers who will have mentored them through the course. The Racecar Challenge winning team and its accompanying teacher will have the opportunity to represent Greece at BWSI’s final racecar competition in the summer 2022 held on MIT’s campus. They will also qualify to attend the last week of BWSI’s program immediately preceding the final challenge, on the MIT campus.
