Extreme Engineering is what CDS is about. Going beyond textbook theory by designing, building and testing the performance of a real vehicle. Your STEM education, curiosity and drive makes it possible for you and your team to push the boundaries of innovation. Consider helping future CDS team members fulfill their dream of extreme engineering by participating in the Pi Day Challenge in support of STEM education.

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14 (3.14.18). All CDS teams are invited to be a part of a very special Pi Day through the CDS Pi Day Challenge. There are K-12 students who have the dream of becoming the next engineer, mathematician or CDS Team Member, but don’t have access to high quality STEM education. The SAE Foundation supports education opportunities for these dreamers through the A World In Motion program. In 2017, donations to the SAE Foundation provided a transformative STEM learning experience for over 100,000 K-12 students and teachers, provide 26 scholarships for exceptional students pursuing STEM degrees and recognize over 100 students, faculty and professionals for their achievements within the mobility industry in 2017.

Your team is invited to help make these kids’ dream come true by supporting A World In Motion® through participating in the CDS Pi Day Challenge. CDS Teams are encouraged to raise $314 in support of the SAE Foundation’s education programs and scholarships. The teams who come closest, meet or exceed the goal of $314 will receive a special commemorative decal for their vehicle. The winning teams will also receive special recognition in the 2018 SAE Foundation Annual Report.

You and your team are working hard, raising funds for your vehicle and realizing your potential. Please consider helping future CDS Team members realize their potential by being a part of CDS Pi Day Challenge.

To register your team please contact collegiatecompetitions@sae.org with your competition attending, university name, and team number.
