“Hey, is this the Eco-marathon car you guys built?”
“How many miles does this get?”
The team is competing at Shell Eco-marathon.
Camera spins around two people looking at a curved sheet of red metal with the Shell logo on it. They then look at an Eco-marathon car.
Shell Eco-marathon is an engineering competition where students design and build cars to see who can go the farthest on the least amount of energy.

Jay with the students, looking at eco cars and walking around and talking.
“Jay asked the students if they wanted a career in Hollywood after today’s shoot and they’re pretty much all on the same page, they want to stick with engineering.”
