Come take a tour of our Cougar Strong Racing Greenpower USA Racing Lab at Long Cane Middle School! It is by no means complete, but here's what it looks like as of day 3 of the build, September 21, 2017 in our very first year of implementing the Greenpower USA program. One thing is for sure...the students are having an absolute blast, they are already learning so much, and Mr. Graham wants to teach 'Greenpower Tech' exclusively next year! ; ) 🏁 Thank you to those that have already supported our program! We hope to bring many more onboard in the coming months. 👍🏼
