In 2009, I converted a gasoline car to run on all electric with my High School students.  When complete, the car carried 5 people from West New York, NJ to the Liberty Science Center.  We did this at highway speeds and had extra power left in the batteries.

Tech ed teacher Ron Grosinger and a group of students at Memorial High School in West New York are almost finished with a project that cost about $14,000 and involved hundreds of hours of work: Converting a used car into an electric car.
