Title: PSTAT: Promoting Sustainable Transportation Among Teens

In a recent survey, 18 to 35 year olds made up 23 percent of new car buyers. Educating this group about the benefits of low emission transportation before they’ve bought their first car may have significant social and environmental impacts. University of Tennessee Knoxville students are introducing teams of local high school students to the value of electric vehicles by mentoring them through the design, construction and evaluation of electric bicycles. Their innovation is using a social science and educational approach to address an environmental problem.

Challenge Area(s): Energy, Green Infrastructure
