High School Go Karting Series
The High School Go Karting Series, held May 16-17, 2016, puts academic and racing skills to the test for high school students. The event is very similar to the International Collegiate evGrandPrix — the biggest difference is that this high school race uses gel cell lead acid batteries.
This race helps build excitement for STEM education in a racing setting. That's why Purdue is developing classroom curricula, clinics, summer camps and workshops. We'll have updates here on the website or you can email Danny White at email@example.com.
