Published 10:47 am Friday, February 24, 2012

What will cars look like in the future? Who will design those cars? Hayden Shumate, Paulina Hardin, Jennifer Gonzalez, Morgan Stott, Reese Alley and Blayde Edwards were some of the Tryon Elementary School fifth-grade students who got answers to those questions and many more when they visited Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research on Friday, Feb. 10. The students were given a tour of the new campus by some of the graduate students, who said there is a great need for American students who have the desire and abilities to develop vehicles of the future. The trip was sponsored by the College Experience Grant through The Polk County Community Foundation. (photo submitted by Denise Corcoran)
