Is there a creative crisis for today’s students? Some people think so. And according to some startling research, creativity among students has been in rapid decline since the 1990s.
Recently, on a test speedway in Indiana, history was made. The Catalyst E2 Max electric bus went 1,102.2 miles on a single charge. The previous electric car record was set by a tiny, single-passenger electric vehicle traveling 28 miles per hour. You and I could actually fit in an electric bus. This means we’re one […]
