Electrathon is a part of the Wisconsin Energy Efficient Vehicle Association (WEEVA). WEEVA is a statewide entity that includes both the Wisconsin Electrathon and Wisconsin Super mileage programs. The goal of both of these programs is to bring attention to the environmental problems of conventional cars and to demonstrate the viability of alternative transportation methods such as electric vehicles and/or higher mileage. Both programs provide a means of teaching young people how to evaluate alternatives, make sustainable life choices and to use a problem solving discipline to design and build these efficient vehicles; all in a hands-on and team oriented approach, Students are combining both mental and physical skills through applying Manufacturing and Engineering concepts and equipment to accomplish their tasks.
