A team of University of Alabama students is ready to turn a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro into an eco-friendly car.

More than 150 students have been working on a prototype to transform the car. It’s all part of the elite, 16-team EcoCar 3 competition.

“We’re here really just to let Tuscaloosa know that we’re here and we’re ready to compete and just like the football team, we want to bring the title back to Tuscaloosa,” Brittany Galloway, a graduate student and communications manager for the EcoCAR 3 project.
