Challenge - Power Me Up
Gas-powered vehicles release harmful greenhouse gases and rely on a natural resource that will someday be gone. As a result, more and more people are buying electric vehicles. More electric vehicles means there is a need for more electric vehicle charging stations. This is an opportunity for savvy entrepreneurs. In this Design & Pitch Challenge, you will plan and design a company that builds charging stations for electric vehicles.
