The Center of Excellence for Aerospace and Advanced Materials Manufacturing (A2M2) is once again a PROUD sponsor of the Granite Falls High School Urban Race Team. Under the direction of a wonderful manufacturing teacher, Michael Werner, these kids are going to Houston to race in the Shell Eco-marathon! The CoE for A2M2 recognizes the importance and value of hands-on project based programs that bring teaching and learning to such a culminating experience that has relevance to these students!

The Shell Eco-marathon challenges high school and college student teams from around the world to design, build and test energy efficient vehicles. With annual events in the Americas, Europe and Asia, the winners are the teams that go the farthest distance using the least amount of energy. http://www.shell.com/home/content/ecomarathon/social_media_hub/
