Local high school students in fuel-efficiency competition
Four local high schools are finishing up a project that could change car technology.
Students are competing in the Super Mileage Challenge. Students participating in the competition build fuel efficient vehicles. The team that builds the most fuel-efficient wins.
Some students involved are taking the project very seriously.
"The ultimate goal is to win the race," said Skyler Carrico, a senior participating in the challenge. "We decided at the beginning of the year: do we want to have fun at the race or do we want to win the race? And we decided we wanted to win."
Local teams include Goshen High School, Fairfield High School and the Warsaw Area Career Center.
The schools compete Monday in Indianapolis.
