Teams from the Center of Excellence for Advanced Manufacturing and Production will showcase their projects Saturday at an Earth Day celebration at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology.
Vehicles on display will include the Supermileage vehicle, which has run 668 miles on a single gallon of fuel; the Alternative Fuel Vehicle, a zero emissions, electric snowmobile for transportation in emissions sensitive testing areas in Greenland; and the Human-Powered Vehicle.
Students will also be on hand to answer questions, and local organizations and businesses will have booths to sell merchandise, demonstrate their eco-friendliness and talk about ways to positively impact the environment.
The event is from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Main Street Square in Rapid City.
Other highlights include the Black Hills Raptor Center's bird performances.
