MINDDRIVE Social Fuel Tour Embarks to D.C. Powered by Social Fuel


Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) May 23, 2013

The students of MINDDRIVE, a nonprofit educational program that aims to teach STEM principles through hands-on learning techniques with projects that inspire our next generation to solve modern issues of our time, are embarking on a road trip in an electric car. The trip is from Kansas City to Washington, D.C., from May 31 to June 7, and will be powered by social fuel through the social activity of MINDDRIVE supporters and the public.

MINDDRIVE provides students with a learning environment that is based on experiential learning projects that allow in-depth exercises and real-world application of math, science, technology, and environmental relationships, said Steve Rees, CEO of MINDDRIVE. The mentors and instructors of MINDDRIVE offer the students an additional voice and role model in their lives. The program gives all of the students a foundation of confidence and an expanded vision of their future that allows them to have a sustainable life.

The Social Fuel Tour, with stops in several cities, including Springfield, Ill., Indianapolis, Ind., Akron, Ohio, Pittsburgh, Pa, and Washington D.C. The students restored and converted a 1967 Karmann Ghia into an electric car. The restoration of the Series 2 Karmann Ghia is made fully from sustainable materials.

An Arduino device designed to monitor and capture activity on the social media channels of MINDDRIVE and their sponsors will trigger the motor to engage or not engage depending on the level of social fuel.

There are several ways that social activity will be monitored during the tour: follows on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram as well as like, shares, comments and YouTube video views. For Twitter and Instagram, supporters must use #minddrive and/or tag @minddriveorg.

In addition to its own social channels, MINDDRIVE will leverage the social networks of the programs core sponsors such as Bridgestone, Sonic, Hertz and Kansas City Power & Light to earn social fuel.

Social engagement will be monitored by VMLs proprietary social listening platform, SEER.

Twenty students will participate in the tour and there will be stops made at technology centers, college campuses, and at environmental projects such as a wind farm. The students will present the MINDDRIVE programs at many of the locations, which helps further develop their public communication skills.

The Social Fuel Tour takes education out of the classroom and on the road, continues Rees. The goal of the tour is to start a national conversation about experiential learning. The education system in America is broken, and programs like MINDDRIVE are helping to transform the education system outside of the political gridlock.

The tour ends in the nations capital with a press conference on Capitol Hill and a briefing hosted by Missouris 5th Congressional District Congressman, Emanuel Cleaver. Attendees include the Department of Education, the Department of Transportation, the Department of Energy, the STEM Coalition, among others, including their colleagues serving in the House.
