The Penn State EcoCAR team was recently featured in the Fall 2009 issue of Penn State’s Outreach Magazine because of its educational outreach and energy sustainability efforts. When most people think of Penn State, they think “football school” or “research,” never “outreach.” But the school has a strong interest in serving the people, so the EcoCAR team’s efforts made a perfect story for the magazine. The team takes a dynamic and unique approach to K-12 education, teachs the community ways to reduce energy consumption in everyday life, and strives to educate the Penn State community about energy sustainability and automotive technologies.
