About: These high schoolers can teach the rest of us a thing or two about environmental responsibility. Since its inception 14 years ago, the Newburgh Free Academy's Solar Racing Team has created seven solar cars, three solar bikes, and two electric vehicles. Now their prized solar car has been selected as one of two solar-powered vehicles to appear on the Discovery Channel's soon-to-be-launched Planet Green Network. In the new series, Battleground Earth, rapper/actor Ludacris and musician Tommy Lee use the automobiles to compete in a cross-country journey to save the earth.
