A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:

In the context of the college's efforts to promote sustainability education, culture and best practices on campus, members of the our Engineering Academy completed the construction of two one-seat solar-powered vehicles and drove them in an impressive race in the School parking area. The Engineering Academy, began its operation during the 2016-17 school year. Its aim was to construct solar-powered/hybrid race cars, which was achieved after two years of hard work. Each student team was called upon to build from scratch a one-seat vehicle and to drive it in a race at the end of the school year. The students designed the vehicle, planned the implementation tasks by taking on specific roles (research and development, construction, problem-solving, etc.) and, finally, they worked as a team with a sense of responsibility and dedication.
