NCOE teacher Jimmy Goebel's students tossed around several ideas for a project this year and settled on trying to build an electric go kart. The project required many hours of research and hands-on work to get everything to work properly.
The electric go kart has variable speed settings in forward and reverse. With this kind of project, students often run into unpredictable problems and this was no exception. However, the learning experience gathered from solving real-world problems is so valuable to their learning experience. The students began researching and gathering materials in February and finished the project on April 30.
