More and more engineering schools in America, and Europe, are requiring their students to have hands-on, realistic application of the theoretical principles they are learning in the classroom. America's pre-eminent technical university, M.I.T. , as well as universities associated with the S.A.E. (Society of Automotive Engineers), and polytechnical universities throughout Europe, are all now promoting the study of Alternative Fuels through university sponsored E-KART projects . In Europe, the university clubs compete with each other to build the most efficient go-karts vis-à-vis fuel mileage, horsepower-to-weight, etc., and then race their karts.
This trend is the genesis for the Career Center Alternative Fuel Club's entrée into the world of go-karting, and the development of several go-karts to run on alternative fuels. We invite you to be part of this forward thinking, team-building, environmentally friendly teaching opportunity.
