Description


Here’s a fantastic example of a community event that brings together local businesses, state agencies…and kids. Fort Pierce, Florida annually hosts “The Extreme Energy Education Event” (or “EX3”) a program where teams of middle school kids design and build go-karts that run on alternative schools, then compete their go-karts in time trials. The Treasure Cost Research Park started the program to encourage practical learning in math, science, and engineering, and now everybody helps out.
