Earlier this month, the Embry Riddle EcoCAR team attended a “Racing for Kids” event at the New Smyrna Speedway. It was a perfect opportunity for the EcoEagles to showcase their car and educate a new audience on the EcoCAR competition and the technologies they have implemented.
On the day of the event the team was given a spot in front of the race track to display their EcoCAR. Team members spoke with many of the kids and families in attendance, giving them some background info on advanced vehicle technologies. Overall it was a wonderful event for the EcoEagles, as well as all the kids involved!
