Electrathon Race at Five Flags Speedway

Some local high school students are learning valuable skills and having fun at the same time.

The annual Electrathon Race was held at Five Flags Speedway Saturday.

Students build these racing cars in the classroom then add batteries for power.

The event is sponsored by the Gulf Power Engineering Society.

Organizers say it's a great way for students to learn math, science and technology.

"I think this has taught me a lot, in terms of fund raising and things like that. Just how to work on a team, and how to take something you know nothing about, and on your own and with a teacher, Mr. Cotton, just  work together as a group of ten students, what we've come up with," said Nick Gupta, PHS senior.

Nick's team raced in Birmingham last weekend.

Organizers say people came all the way from California to participate in Saturday's race.
