Students of the Los Altos Academy of Engineering have unveiled the 'HICE' vehicle, which is short for Hydrogen Internal Combustion Engine, in a project that aims to expose high school students to potential career paths and exhibit their technical and engineering skills.

The 'HICE' vehicle is the first of its kind to be built by high school students. The car uses a converted four-stroke Honda engine that uses hydrogen instead of gasoline. After successful testing in February, the 'HICE' vehicle is ready for public viewing and the World Solar Challenge in Australia.
