High school students are provided with a yearlong educational program involving the entire school and community. Beginning in the fall of the school year, students begin learning about advanced transportation concepts as part of their curriculum. Throughout the year, they complete numerous projects, including the conversion of a gasoline vehicle to electric power. In the SMARTT Challenge’s Final Event, they compete against other high schools to see who can go the farthest and fastest. They are also tested on their knowledge of the vehicle.
