Smart Challenge, a gathering of student transportation projects is having their culminating event of the year this weekend.

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.

If your school is participating, make sure you upload your photos to the MAKE Flickr pool. We would love to hear about your projects!
