EVENTS Calendar

FEBRUARY * Compiled by Pamela A. Keene

The power of green
iddle and high school student racing teams from
across the country gathering at LaGrange College for
the Diverse Power Grand Prix on Feb. 29 will have more than
winning on their minds. While racing the electric cars they
built themselves, they'll also be calculating angles, solving
problems and pouring on the speed.
"The goal is to engage young people-boys and girls-in
STEM [science, technology, engineering and math] activities
while giving them a fun platform for competition," says Chip
Giles, Troup County School System coordinator for GreenpowerUSA, an initiative to encourage STEM education. "This
concept has been amazingly successful; we expect about 40
teams this year."
Teams build their cars from the ground up. Each team is
responsible for developing its car's aerodynamics and physical
structure. Cars must be designed to use green energy, which
provides their power.
"The Diverse Power Grand Prix is highly competitive and
super fun, not only for the teams but for the spectators, parents and the community," Giles says.

DIVERSE POWER GRAND PRIX

The Georgia event, sponsored by LaGrange-based Diverse
Power, is one of 15 similar contests across the nation and features
a full day of racing on a loop track that winds through the athletic
training area of LaGrange College.
