There are a number of ways to navigate Kennesaw State University’s two campuses: walking, biking, skating or perhaps even catching a ride on the Big Owl Bus. For some students, any of those options are more than satisfactory. For a certain group of engineering students who spend their free time tucked away in KSU’s Wilder Communications Building, it leaves much to be desired. Armed with knowledge acquired in Georgia’s second largest engineering college, these students showcase their ingenuity by taking standard modes of transportation and augmenting them through electric power. Whether it’s through castaway skateboards or hand-me-down dirt bikes, these motorized devices perform on par with those already in the marketplace for a fraction of the cost – oh, and they can get you across campus in under three minutes.
