High-school students are taking up the solar-powered car challenge in a race from Fort Worth, Texas, to Los Angeles. Students in the competition design, engineer and build their entries for the event sponsored by the Solar Car Challenge Foundation. "That's the function of our foundation, to motivate kids in science and engineering and alternative energy. Towns empty out to come out and see the kids" along the race route, said foundation President Lehman Marks.
