They recorded the fastest time in every heat and were the only team to complete the 20-meter track in less than six seconds.
It was one of 44 middle school teams from across the nation that competed Sunday, April 29, in the challenge.
A featured event at the national finals for middle school students, the Model Car Challenge invites students to design, build and race model cars.
This competition tests the creative engineering skills of many of the brightest math and science students in the nation as they gain hands-on experience in the automotive design process and with electric battery technology.
This is the second consecutive year a team from Daniel Wright Junior High School represented the Chicago region at the national science event.
It's the largest science competition in the United States, with more than 14,000 participants.
