What is Under the Hood?

Record #:
Students in Broderick Ward’s Electric Trade II class at Southeast Halifax High School in Halifax, North Carolina recently converted a 1989 Geo Metro into an electric car, and won a national racing competition with it. That Metro and the students from a poor and rural county are what inspired a novel that is the basis for a new Hollywood film.
