Hydrogen Car Challenge

The Hydrogen Car Challenge (H2 Challenge) is one of two hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) programs offered by Avenues in Motion. The H2 Challenge was first run in 2007, in keeping with our commitment to educate students about the existence of alternative fuels.

For H2 2022, engineers from Howmet Aerospace volunteered as our in-person judges.
The Video Journal category was judged by virtual volunteers from Marotta Controls, Aerospace Engineering.

Participating Schools for 2022:

Belleville High School, Boonton High School, Madison High School, New Providence High School, Newton High School, Piscataway High School, Roxbury High School and Union County Magnet High School.

You can view our previous H2 competitions on our YouTube channel as the Covid-19 pandemic led us to have virtual competitions instead of an in-person race day.
