High School Builds Coast To Coast Electric Car
The “Electrifying Education Coast-To-Coast” run will begins June 11 in San Diego, California and end on June 22 in Jacksonville, Florida after a coast to coast run. The MINDDRIVE is a Kansas City non-profit organization that wants to bring experiential learning techniques and a hands-on project for urban high school students. The idea is to build an electric vehicle designed for a coast-to-coast demonstration run beginning in mid-June.
Training A New Work Force. The program aims teaching potentially at-risk high school students by doing in a hands-on, experiential way. By Making learning fun, it fire and keeps their imaginations piqued, making them creatively energized.
Linda Buchner, Co-Founder of MINDDRIVE says that: “Kansas City isn’t the only city in America where students are slipping through the cracks in the educational system because of socio-economic factors beyond their own control,” “It’s an issue in many cities and small towns across the country. We want to show that there is hope for these students by using a different learning model to reach them.”
