– Luke Laborde turned a 32 mpg gas-burning Bradley GT II kit car into a fully electric ride for just about $10,000.
– Five kids from West Philly’s high school auto shop class, ex-gang members and high school dropouts built a soybean-powered race car that gets 50+ mpg.
– An 8th-grader built a solar-powered 4-wheeled bike with GPS and iPod dock.
– Andrew Angelloti, after saving up $6,000 as a part time lifeguard, converted his Mazda truck to be an electric plug-in.
