Global EEE has launched a fundraiser to support student competitions that promote Education, Energy efficiency, and Environmental consciousness. Student teams apply math, science, and engineering to construct and race electric, hybrid-electric, and solar powered cars.
The goals of the competition are to generate enthusiasm for science and engineering at a crucial stage in the educational development of young people, improve their understanding of scientific concepts and renewable energy technologies, and encourage them to consider technical careers at an early age. It also emphasizes innovation, critical thinking, leadership, team work, and project management, while educating a new generation of drivers about electric vehicles.
The fundraiser and will draw a ticket the first day of each month beginning August 1 for a $2000 Riide Electric Bike, and the Grand Prize drawing plus 5 additional Riides on December 3. The Grand prize is a BMW i3 electric car (or $40,000 cash).
Raffle Organizer Nabih Bedewi says that people who buy their tickets early have a higher chance at winning a prize because of the multiple drawings each month, and the diminishing number of tickets.
