GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The Advanced Vehicle Technology students at Greensboro Dudley High School are constantly trying to build a better electric car. 

The students come together after school and even on holidays to adjust the electric motors so they can travel farther. 

The students take their cars to eco-challenges where they compete against other high schools and colleges. 

While the competition is fun, Advanced Vehicle Technology instructor Ricky Lewis says the students are learning more about a possible career.

"The different universities like Penn State and Southern Cal, they were impressed so they saw themselves as a part of the big picture and they can be a part of green technologies too," Lewis said.
