Greenpower

The Challenger Middle School Greenpower teams build, modify and race F24 electric kit cars in the GreenpowerUSA competitons. Challenger currently has two teams and race 3 cars. The Eagles team is composed of 8th grade students, most who have already had one year of Greenpower and who modify an existing car that was previously built from the kit.  The other team is composed of 7th graders and some new 8th graders who manage 2 cars, a modified and a stock F24.  These teams take Greenpower as an elective and meet each day. 

How to Join / Membership Requirements: 
Students are placed on these teams when they apply for and take the Greenpower courses open to 7th and 8th graders. Space is limited by what safety dictates in a construction/race environment - approximately 12 students per class with the Introduction class being 2 - classes of 12. These courses are academic in nature meeting STEM standards for the state.
Other Info: 
Challenger has competed in GreenpowerUSA races since Spring of 2015. We have multiple podium awards. Our race day points also always include a presentation thus teaching the students how to convey the hands-on knowledge they have gained. We have also raced in a Greenpower race in Indianapolis at the IMS!
