The Boy Scouts of Starkville visit MSU EcoCAR
Boy Scout Troop 14 of Starkville, MS paid the Mississippi State University EcoCAR team a visit at CAVS on Monday, April 18th. Several scouts as well as adult leaders came to learn more about what our EcoCAR team has been working on these past 3 years. The team began with a hands-on activity illustrating the transformation of energy by stretching out rubber bands. The activity gave way to an in depth discussion about the technology of MSU’s specific car, The EcoCAR Competition, and student and sponsor involvement. The MSU team also gave them a tour of their vehicle to give them an opportunity to see the technology first hand.
The purpose of this event was to not only educate the troop about the competition & Mississippi State’s efforts, but also relate it to them and where they are at this time in their lives. By the end of the night curiosity had been transformed into knowledge and, hopefully, knowledge into a driving force behind these bright young minds that are the future of our world.
