The Power Drive Program® debuted during the 1998-99 school year under the leadership of Omaha Public Power District (OPPD). It is now run by the schools EVERON – Electric Vehicle Energy Research of Nebraska.
The Power Drive Program encourages interest in energy-related and automotive-related industries. Power Drive brings a practical focus to students’ math, science and/or vocational education. During the course of a school year, students design and construct a safe, energy-efficient electric vehicle that they showcase during a series of rallies in the spring. Students work in teams, under the direction of instructors who have been trained at Power Drive workshops.
