A group of about 15 students from West Philadelphia High School is in the running for the 2010 Progressive Insurance Automotive X PRIZE, a competition to build street-ready vehicles that can average 100 miles per gallon or more.
That is awesome! I am so amazed by their accomplishment so far.

Not all those who wander are lost
