Could these student-designed vehicles be the cars of the future?

The Shell Eco-Marathon, which pits university students against each other in a bid to create the most fuel-efficient car, will be coming to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park as part of Make the Future London.

The competition, which will be held in London for the first time in its 30-year history, is part of the four-day science festival taking place between Thursday, June 30 and Sunday, July 3.

It will provide an opportunity for the whole family to learn about energy and the future, and feature six themed zones with a variety of interactive experiences, including building cars powered by saltwater, trying out an energy zorb and taking a journey deep underground thanks to virtual reality.

There will also be the chance to meet some of the nation’s young entrepreneurs and find out more about the projects helping to inspire the next generation.

Make the Future London is a free event but is ticketed. To register, visit makethefuture.shell/tickets
