Greenpower

The mission of the Greenpower program is to introduce our students to design, manufacturing processes and project management as they learn concepts of drafting, 3D modeling, advanced manufacturing and fabrication, leading to the “on-track” aspects of testing and evaluation. Greenpower roots are in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects, as well as community outreach and marketing.
Sponsors:

How to Join / Membership Requirements: 
Students in fifth grade attend an informational meeting about the Greenpower program and what is expected of its' members. The students that are interested in joining the Greenpower team, fill out an application in the Fall of the school year.
Other Info: 
The Greenpower Electric Car Challenge is offered in the elementary level through high school levels. Student teams design and build single-seat electric cars that race in local, and international competitions.
The cars are built from kits, allowing students to design their own body and engineer car parts through 3D printing, based on their own designs.
